O God, beneath Thy guiding hand, 
Our exiled fathers crossed the sea, 
And when they trod the wintry strand, 
With prayer and psalm they worshiped Thee. 

Thou heardst, well pleased, the song, the prayer- 
Thy blessing came; and still its power 
Shall onward through all ages bear 
The memory of that holy hour. 

Laws, freedom, truth and faith in God 
Came with those exiles o'er the waves ; 
And where their pilgrim feet have trod, 
The God they trusted guards their graves. 

And here Thy name, God of Love, 
Their children's children shall adore, 
Till these eternal hills remove 
And spring adorns the earth no more.

Al came to Bates from far-away Barbados, 
bringing with him his vicious tennis cut, his rau- 
cous laugh, his kingly bearing, and his bum tenor, 
or is it baritone, voice. He says woman is a mys- 
tery, but we notice Al dees his best to solve her. 
With his soon-to-be-purchased demon motorcycle, his 
ivory-inlaid mandolin, his go-get-em spirit, his ear- 
nestness, Al will go far in his chosen field, be it re- 
ligion or business.

Andy is always ready to mix up some kind of a 
concoction with a guaranteed pre-war flavor or to 
launch some get-rich-quick scheme. If you think 
him a crab, just remember that Andy simply has to 
hand out advice whenever he can, and says it's 
easier to crab than to construct.

We are just beginning to suspect Evelyn of be- 
ing romantic — oh, yes, ROMANTIC in capitals. 
According to her, romance runs somewhat to a 
thrilled contemplation of manly qualities and char- 
acteristics. From a quiet, unassuming little lady 
she has become a talkative, somewhat sentimental 
person of flapper tendencies. Reason? Emma. It 
is, however, merely a passing fancy and will wear 
away, leaving our sensible, understanding, very de- 
mure and optimistic Evelyn.

Mary doesn't make much noise — proctors don't 
anyway, I guess — but just look at her record! She's 
the kind of girl we all look at — and sigh — we could 
never be like that. Latin Comp done a week ahead 
of time; yes, that has an appeal for us, but some-

Since Arthur has been one of Mr. Bates' com- 
muters via shank's mare and the Figure 8 through- 
out his college career, we have not become quite so 
well acquainted with him as we might have had he 
lived with us on the campus. The habitat of this 
young man seems to be Hedge Laboratory. His 
life is not all burettes, beakers, and bunsen burners, 
however, for it is known that he makes intermittent 
sojourns to that part of the campus where dwell the 
fair ladies of the institution, be it fair weather or 
otherwise. Anyway, he is one of Mr. Higgins' 
worthy assistants and a more efficient one we could 
not ask for.

Here she comes — our slender, willowy Marian, 
the girl who can do almost anything, who is a 
basketball shark, a tennis fiend, and a lyric soprano — 
yes indeed, a LYRIC soprano with emphasis on the 
soprano. She is demure on the outside, but oh, 
what hidden depths! And by the way, Marian, old 
dear, how many times have you refused the sparkling 
diamond? We know they are many and to the 
point, as the fellar says. Here's how, and may you 
never forget old Twenty-One and her true-blue

We do not flatter Carl when we say that he is 
prince of good fellows, for he is that — and more. 
He has been successful in all of his undertakings, 
Romance, too, has claimed a large share of his 
attention and his successes in this field have been 
as pronounced as his triumphs in other ventures. 
Successful student, good sport, a staunch friend, 
ever a gentleman — the type which '21 is proud to 
claim as its own.

Bernard is one of our off-campus students. He 
is such a quiet boy that aside from the fact that 
he attends classes we don't know much about him. 
He is a speedy boy (on skates) as he has demon- 
strated more than once on the hockey team. His 
curly hair and pink cheeks make him a favorite 
among the ladies, but he doesn't waste his talents 
on the campus. He is quiet and undemonstrative, 
but his twinkling eye shows an appreciation for 
the humor of life. The quiet kind is the one which 
brings surprises, and we may yet live to learn that 
Bernard of '21 is one of its famous men.

The gold-plated arm elastics are unanimously 
awarded to Dusty for his inimitable dexterity in 
wielding his mother tongue (as well as that of sev- 
eral aunts and uncles). In short, where Dusty is, 
there's sure to be a crowd, (or a woman—but a new 
one) and every indication points to him as the 
"only and original" gloom dispeller. Some men's 
hearts are reached through their stomachs, but 
Dusty gets in through their ears, and the per- 
manence of the impression is registered by an ever- 
lasting spirit of camaraderie in the hearts of all.

"Bondie" he is called, but believe me there are 
no strings fastened to this boy's coat tail. If ye be- 
lieve it not, who cares? His is the life of the free. 
So variable are Willard's emotions, passions, and am- 
bitions that it is really most difficult to even attempt 
a suggestion as to the dominant motives behind his 
actions. He seeks to enjoy everything in life from 
the realm of the after-the-party-clean-up-gang in 
Rand Hall to the lures of Terpsichore. "Bondie" is 
a good sport and one who is always ready to em- 
bark upon any kind of expedition. To go further 
into the innermost recesses of this man's being- 
would require more space than is allotted for these 
impressions. Let it suffice to say he is one of the 
most enterprising chaps of '21, sure to succeed in 
the big things in life of which he is capable.

Here comes Ada, small but oh, how business- 
like! Just you notice the way she marches along- 
straight for one particular place, never turning- 
aside for little things, nor allowing herself to be 
distracted by the more frivolous Batesites. Not 
that she is a grind or a plugger — Heavens, no! 
Why, she is one of the happiest kids on the campus, 
and has a smile ready at any time— day or night. 
She is efficient, that's all.

Here's an attractive crab who never supported a 
college activity in her life. The college would feel 
nattered to know that you considered its affairs 
"those old things" — but it isn't so much to be won- 
dered at, if your comparisons are drawn from those 
delightful house parties at Tacoma. You can give 
a good time if you have the "I don'twanter" and 
lately you have been docile enough to be in leading- 
strings. They do say there is just one cure for the 
parlor bolshevist — and that's the kitchen. Goin^- 
to try it?

Viv has absorbed some of the college quiet since 
she came — cloistered halls and balls — but she still 
has a temper, and she is going to scalp everybody 
when she is in it. But it is such a funny little 
temper that you can't do anything but stand back 
and laugh. Viv doesn't mind a bit of a roughhouse 
and she is great with the shillalah. All the kids on 
the street know her. It wouldn't be surprising to 
see her playing with them — you do now, don't you 
Viv? You're a good little scout always, and there's 
a lot of good sense in that head of yours.

Brad's the sort that has a firm idea of right and 
wrong — right is right and all that isn't right is 
wrong. No half-way business about Rufus. What 
a serious person you are, Brad, except when you 
giggle. Twenty-One appreciates that giggle and 
also that earnestness of yours. What would we do 
without it in hockey, as you crouch there in that 
old brown skirt at the goal ready to kill the ball. — 
You win, Brad, every time.

"Sammie — Sammie Brewster! Will you rub my 
back before you go to bed?" "Say, Sammie — fill my 
hot-water bottle. My feet are cold!" Yep, this is 
Sammie, Rand Hall physician, regular old scout, best 
ever. She'll do anything she can and chuckle while 
she's doing it — and for recreation, she sings. You 
don't believe it? Just come into Kate's room some 
night when she's putting Kate to bed — sneak in 
cautiously and hear her chant the ballad of "My 
Old Horse, Napoleon." For an all-around, good- 
natured, optimistic kid — see Sammie.

In every graduating class there is always sure 
to be several characters whose versatility manifests 
itself in many ways outside the class rooms. Frank, 
or Professor Pathe as he is often called, is this sort 
of a fellow. We know him as a Chem. shark, as a 
man who dabbles in art and literature, and as a 
super-graceful shimmie artist. These combined 
qualities resulted in his winning a commission as 
a Second Lieutenant who was prevented from going 
across only by the end of the war. Some call him 
a crab, but he is that before breakfast only, and 
as the day progresses, we find in him a most agree- 
able companion.

This veritable greyhound of the cinders cares 
naught for the laws governing speed and endur- 
ance. Many an opponent has been forced to give 
him the lead and be content to watch his heels as 
he crosses the line to victory. Once upon a time 
Richard's so perfect resemblance to his twin brother 
Ray gave rise to some very amusing situations, but 
we trust that the young lady in question has finally 
succeeded in distinguishing one from the other. If 
Dick is as successful in the medical profession as he 
has been on the cinders, we feel sure that he will 
come out on top.

"Cam" was once told by a girl that he had brains, 
and you would never question the truth of this 
statement, if you really knew him. Musician, art- 
ist, mechanic, athlete, preacher, and LOVER — he 
is all these and more — a Procrastinator, or better, 
a Sport. Cam's greatest weakness is a seven-forty- 
a-m-snooze while Greek is in session. Can you 
blame him? His greatest need is an alarm clock, 
or a "Maid." Chief failing — his age. His great- 
est ambition is to convince "Prexy" that "it was 
necessary." Here's luck to you — none of us could.

As his record implies, Eddie is one of our athletes 
possessing- ability in almost all departments of sport, 
but starring in football. During his Junior year, 
Eddie caught the dancing craze, and is now an 
enthusiastic promoter of dancing parties. When it 
comes to humor, he is in a class by himself, for he 
has a supply of jokes which he brought with him 
his Freshman year. (See quotation above.) When 
this youth leaves Bates, a real live wire is gone and 
the place where he lands will be lucky.

Could the new "N" rays of Ahmed Hassan be 
harnessed for our use, or could the mystic powers 
of the Orient be applied to show the inside thoughts 
of our friends' and neighbors' minds, some of us 
would be scorched by the terrific impact of those 
rays. But by the laws of natural selection, there 
would be those individuals who would turn aside 
any fiery shafts and would come unburned from the 
terrific onslaught. Such a man would be a clean, 
neat, gentlemanly person ; probably a quiet, thorough 
man with a straight, level gaze and a good, alert, 
happy personality; a man well liked by his fellows. 
George Asbury Case need have no fear.

how to have a good time, which is more than some 
of us appear to accomplish. Moreover, Ruth is a

Here is one of our athletes from "along the Ken- 
nebec." Every spring "Cuke" burns 'em across for 
Bates, and during the summer he does the same

the type that the student body will miss and one 
who will always be remembered with pleasure by 
his classmates.

And off he goes, unmindful of spikes or blows, until 
he finally digs himself out of the pile of struggling 
arms and legs, and Bates is ten yards nearer the 
goal. Or with the thermometer 20 degrees below 
he rallies his team, there is a flash of garnet and 
white and the puck has gone through Bowdoin's 
goal again. "Cut" is always ready to take a chance, 
whether it is in leading the charge "over the top"

What would '21 do without Min, who puts the pep 
into things. Whether it be backing up the forward 
line in hockey, blocking her opponent in basket-ball,

by starting off right in his Freshman year and

Theda is one of our serious people; in fact, about 
the most serious we acknowledge, but in the last 
two years we have been discovering an enormous 
store of jollity previously unimagined. We are 
willing to admit our error — it is one common to the 
human animal — the tendency to judge by appear- 
ances only. Theda, your sense of humor is not so 
young as it is bashful, and folks are likely to mis- 
judge bashful things. Cheer up, this isn't a ser- 
mon. Here's how, Theda, keep on grinning.

On an October day in the fall of the year 1917 
there strolled on the campus a youth who was 
going to accomplish several things in the four 
years to come. That noble looking young man was 
none other than Maurice "Hardy" Dion. Maurice 
has shown himself to be a very efficient and diligent 
worker. For when he was not mixing MgS0 4 with 
H 2 0, or shovelling snow for the track department, he 
has been lending a hand in the management of cer- 
tain bankrupt railway lines that we might men- 
tion. No mention need be made of Maurice's equal- 
ly successful activities conducted along strictly 
romantic lines.

A straightforward, efficient little body is 
Carrie. Always accomplishing things without any 
noise or confusion. If she is a bluffer, she is a very 
successful one, for everything connected with her 
seems genuine. She is jolly, too; heaps of fun on 
a good time, and especially so at out-of-door sports. 
Carrie is another of the invaluables of our class. 
We couldn't feel all together without you, Carriedoe.

"Can't you picture the parish youngsters swarm- 
ing over the parsonage to enjoy the unfailing wit 
and humor of the pastor's wife?" She can sew 
well enough to pass the censorship of the Ladies' 
Circle, too, and what a help her uncanny knowledge 
of books will be when she has to entertain the visit- 
ing clergy! Remember, Lillian, that not all of the 
flock have such excellent shock absorbers as "The

Here is to a prince among men — Durost. At 
first we did not know just where to place him be- 
cause of his quiet, unassuming air. We soon dis- 
covered him, however, just as did Doctor Tubbs, 
who chose him as one of his instructors in Geology, 
and as did also the Phil-Hellenic Club, which elected 
him as its president. Yes, we know Durost now, as 
a man with a serious smile, gentle manner, an excel- 
lent student and a friend. 


"Charley," "Eb" 

"Now there you go again." 

Born March 7, 1899, Thomaston, Conn.; Thom- 
aston High School; Baseball, 2, 3, 4; Varsity Club, 
3, 4; "B," 3; Class Football; Class Treasurer, 3; 
Class Hockey, 3, 4. 

Since "Eb" arrived from Connecticut, a youth 
showing much promise, our knowledge of that spicy 
commonwealth has continued to increase and he has 
been successful in fulfilling that promise. In the 
first place, he has always been clever in his studies 
in a modest sort of a way; for two years he has 
played left field on the varsity nine, seldom spec- 
tacular but always Charley on the spot. Ability at- 
tended with modesty is characteristic of "Eb." 


Always busy — never in a hurry.

"Say, Mil, will you do something for me?" "Why 
of course — what is it?" 

This is characteristic of Mil. She's always 
where she ought to be — in fact, wherever she can do 
the most good, and her disposition, joyfully resist- 
ing the rougher edges of human nature, continues 
purposeful, happy, and smiling. Some of us envy 
you, Mil. 



Born July 12, 1898, Portland, Maine; Portland 
High; Y. W. C. A.; Enkuklios; Entre Nous; U. A. 
C. C; Alethea; Portland Club. 

Ethel is a quiet little dear who would have us 
consider her truly wicked; eh, Ethel? Worldly wise 
and skilled in the combat of life. To her, men are 
the supreme source of interest — when they are not 
a bore. Oh, yes, even Ethel finds them thus at 
times — she told us so. So Ethel pretends to be a 
vamp — and although her real self is not concerned 
with the complete comprehension of the male, we are 
completely fooled, and hand her the honor of being 
the Class Vamp. 

P.S. — We were in error — and apologize. 



Born January 21, 1899, in Auburn, Maine; Ed- 
ward Little High School. 

We do not feel quite so well acquainted with 
Clarence as we do with some of our other class- 
mates, because he lives in Auburn and never talks 
much. He is known as "Silent" because he never 
says anything except in class when he is called on, 
but then he always comes through with the right 
answer. He is a scientist, in several branches, but 
he is more than that, for he can write poetry when 
he tries. Most of us remember his rhymed account 
of the Chem. 3 course. He is a hard worker, and 
we predict he will get there, in spite of the fact that 
he never advertises himself.

After trying to scurry up something from Dite's 
past and failing miserably (why, we couldn't even 
discover that she'd ever eaten any bananas at night 
time) we have decided that we'll have to summarize 
briefly her chief characteristics and let it go at 
that. Let's see now, she's quiet, pleasant, cheerful, 
leisurely, lanky, rather pretty, rather witty, and 
altogether nice to look upon. SH! Something else, 
too, a secret — she's studious!

Esther has never caused a ripple on the surface 
of the class, but she has been handy when 1921 
wanted to borrow anything, from a couple of silver 
tea-sets to a car or two. In her Sophomore year, 
she took up surveying with noticeable results as 
seen on her left hand — a beauty, isn't it? But don't 
be envious — you know we all haven't her qualifica- 
tions: a good disposition, a knowledge of cooking 
and housekeeping, and a dimple. 


"/ don't care what happens, I'm going to get a 
letter to-morrow." 

Born Nov. 26, 1899, Franklin, Mass.; Horace 
Mann High; Glee Club Manager, 4; Enkuklios, 1, 
2, 3, 4; Enkuklios Treasurer, 4; Second Hockey, 2, 
4; Glee Club, 3, 4; Honor Student. 

Doesn't she look wide-awake in this picture? 
But alas! appearances are so deceitful, because you 
can nearly always find her curled up on her couch, 
sound asleep. What matters it that the hours slip, 
or that lessons are unprepared, when she can out- 
shine us all in class. And, by the way, that dim- 
pled smile has done much to brighten up the class 
and to make the spirit of 1921 ideal. 


"Dip," "Link," "Lightening" 
"Oh my Gawsh!" 
How we admire a fellow who is characterized by 
an even, sanguine temperament and whose disposi- 
tion is remarkable for its amiability. Again, how 
we envy him as he excludes the word worry from 
his vocabulary. Yes, we've got to hand it to 
"Link"; he is the personification of nonchalance and 
optimism. We fellows like to visit him in his "hang 
out" — room 31, Parker Hall — and hear him jazz that 
old banjo so eloquently. In turn we are always 
glad to have him enter our sanctum sanctorum and 
interrupt our study with some of that droll humour 
which is his specialty. Arnold is an exceptionally 
good student, but above all a "simon pure" good 
fellow and — "It's always fair weather when good 
fellows get together * * *"

Barb is the jolliest person you could imagine, and 
a veritable heart-breaker. Gee, Barb, that's a ter- 
rible rep! And do you know, you let yourself in 
for a deal of something or other when you cut your 
hair, because it makes you look cuter than ever; 
at least that's what we hear whispered on the other 
side of the campus, and the girls like it so much 
they forget to be jealous. Here's to you, Barb. 
Don't let that grin wear off. 



"Oh, shucks! That's the third envelope I've spoiled."

Owen is one of our returned World War veterans, 
having spent over a year in France with the A. E. F. 
To know him is to like him. A good friend, an 
agreeable companion and a good sport, he has won 
a warm place in the hearts of us all during the two 
years he has been with us. But don't let that quiet, 
unassuming manner of his deceive you, for beneath 
it there is a driving and persistent force that in- 
sures his success in whatever he undertakes.

Leroy comes directly from Vinalhaven where 
they grow good men. He is one of those boys 
blessed with an abundance of both brain and brawn. 
Whether it is on the athletic field or in the class 
room, he shows that same old "do or die" spirit 
and always comes up smiling. That same cheerful 
smile of his has won him many a friend on both sides 
of the campus — a good many more, perhaps, "across 
the way," than he is aware of. You have started 
the game right, "Grossie"; keep it up.

Mabel is ever ready to lend a helping hand. She 
even makes out Freshman schedules. She has a re- 
markably good disposition, yet how she did sputter 
when she heard the Freshmen's term of probation 
had been lengthened to February first. Although 
Mabel's tastes are scientific rather than literary, she 
knows every line of Carlyle's "Hero Worship." Her 
specialty, however, is ornithology and although the 
"price of wisdom is above rubies" the diamond was 
not mentioned.

At last! Oh Muse, inspire us! How to tell 
about Glad in this brief space! Is there anything 
she hasn't done? She is brilliant, even to the point 
of irony at times (beware, Glad, don't overwork it. 
She is genial when she wishes, she has perfect con- 
trol of herself, she does everything under the sun, 
she — but what's the use, O Muse — words fail us! 
We can but say we admire your skill, Glad.

Buckfield High School; Cercle Francais; Musical

Baseball, 2nd team; College Choir; Greek Play. 

Mr. Hall from Buckfield made his first appear- 
ance with the class of 1921 when Mr. Bates' army 
was organized in 1918. His demeanor gives him 
the appearance of an earnest and sincere student. 
Far be it from me to let the true facts be known. 
Harry sang tenor efficiently in the glee club two 
years and was one of its leading vamps. There are 
times when Harry is very, very serious. He seems 
to be meditating on things far away from our sordid 
sphere. It must be that he is a philosopher. Other- 
wise, — well, we will not think of it. The impres- 
sion that he has made on the co-eds and the tribute 
that he has received from them are listed elsewhere. 



Born September 8, 1901, Balasore, India; Jordan 
High, Lewiston, Me.; Honor Student. 

A brilliant person is Frank, truly brilliant, a 
thing which can be said of comparatively very few- 
persons. His cynically pessimistic tendencies can 
be laid at the door of his extreme youth. Really, 
Frank, you wouldn't look half so worse if you'd 
smile oftener. That seems to be your chief fault. 
As a critic, you are very interesting and show signs 
of unusual ability, but because of the common fail- 
ing of humanity, we are likely to despair of you if 
you don't grin once in a while; you know, people 
judge extensively by appearances. 


Born September 9, 1897, Randolph, Maine; 
Gardiner High School; Greek Play. 

Here is the steady, dependable lad who has 
ploughed through his four years of college with the 
sincerest interest in the navy and a little romance 
on the side. "Eddie" had a job cut out for him 
when he came back from the navy and had to 
make up the spring term's work, of the Sopho- 
more year, but he came through nobly and caught 
up with his class. When he begins teaching school 
in the wilds of Vermont next year, he will have the 
advantage over a good many of his classmates. He 
will have his home and friends to retire to after a 
strenuous day's work, and some say that is the su- 
preme satisfaction of life.

"Behold the man" for whom Rand has no terrors. 
He used to stand at the bottom of the stairs in Rand 
and pick out the best looker as she came down. 
"Les" has steadied down now, though. His favor- 
ite resort in the beautiful spring-time is Mt. David. 
One can't always be sure who he is with, though. Al- 
though "Les" lived in the city he is better known 
to us than most town fellows because he spent the 
first year in J. B. and another in Parker with his 
brother Eddie. "Les" has been one of Uncle Sam's 
"gobs" and he still occasionally revisits the scene of 
his warlike activities. He thinks college life is 
rather dull (because of the classes). We extend 
our sympathies to the world when "Les" gets to 
tearing around, trying to make it speed up.

With that atom of four feet four before us, brim- 
ming over with pep, we cheer until our vocal cords 
refuse to assist us. But is Irma a Bates woman? 
Oh, no, she's only a co-ed; she sings — Out Loud! — 
on the campus, when Bowdoin boys are around ! ! 
Every Prof, knows better than to expect her before 
at least ten minutes after the last bell. Even Dave 
looks anxiously up Rand Hall stairs, only after he 
has waited for one-half hour or more. But late or 
early, in basketball or prize speaking, Irma always 
''gets there."

Bunny hails from the hills o' Hampshire and 
though she landed in our midst a month late Fresh- 
man year, it only evidenced to us that Bunny is slow 
and easy, but she gets there just the same. Bunny's 
only outdoor sport is chasing cats on spring even- 
ings—ask her about it. If you want to know what 
is going on downtown in the movie line, she can al- 
ways give you the desired information because Bun- 
ny is a movie fan. Perhaps we like her best 
because she is always cheery and good-natured.

Eunice is a corking good scout and a heap of 
fun whenever you go in to see her. You'll generally 
find her at her desk of an evening, with the dull 
green shade on her lamp fixed just so, and a fat 
note-book spread open before her. Maybe you're 
thirsty and would like to borrow her cup — you 
don't need to disturb her, for you've used it before, 
and it's always in the same place. 

P.S. — She was "captain actual" of the second 
team basketball — and kept 'em in peppy condition.

Enkuklios; Y. W. C. A.; Entre Nous; U. A. C. C;

We learned early in our college course to go to 
Dece for many things, especially for all kinds of 
doses and the best divinity fudge ever made. No 
wonder this latter accomplishment has made her so 
popular at Parker Hall! We girls, however, have 
found that her domestic ability is almost unlim- 
ited. She has always presided so well over the 
chafing dishes at our good old spreads that cher- 
ished memories of Dece and her culinary art will 
remain with us till we meet again.

Laura is our star bluffer — an honest-to-goodness 
jolly kid, who knows how to have a good time, but 
when she shone forth as president of Stu Gee — ye 
gods! We never knew of anything in the form of 
good fun that Laura doesn't know how to do — 
and we probably never shall. When asked if there 
was anything she didn't like to do, she looked a 
trifle puzzled and then remarked with a little laugh, 
"I don't know of anything."

M'arg is our literary genius and has all the at- 
tendant idiosyncrasies of the species. Her favorite 
form of amusement is observing life in its human 
manifestations. As a problem, she rivals an 
entire calculus; as a human, she is a dissector of 
experience and a cavernous gulf of curiosity — she 
would like to have known every experience in cap- 
tivity or out; as a comrade she's witty, interesting, 
and ready for anything. Here's to you, creature of 
moods, odd mixture of everything: here's how, and

A creature of moods is Florence, who still sails 
calmly on trying, perhaps unconsciously, to conceal 
her moodiness. She's good in anything she tries 
to do and she isn't noisy about it either. In spite 
of her Puritanical heredity, she proceeds to be won- 
derfully modern in her point of view and she is the 
most naive young person you are likely to meet. 
She has two hobbies, needlework and Charlie.

Holding down a manager's job on the Student 
and Mirror speaks well for his ability; doing his 
turn on the track every day during the season shows 
his determination. The fact that he roomed with 
the same guy for four years is sufficient indication 
that he has great forbearance and a remarkably 
even disposition. Bill won't have to worry about 
getting along in the world, no matter what line he 
may take up.

Fran is the kid that knows how to take care of 
herself. She doesn't work herself all out the day 
before a game, and then go round saying, "I'm 
so tired." No, that's not Fran. Just before the 
battle begins, she goes calmly about on visits to the 
various nerve-racked members of the team and 
soothes their worries, quiets their fears; and it's 
not till everyone is coolly ready that she allows 
herself to remark fearfully, "I'm so nervous."

"Kik-ki-kik-kik-HAW-HAW-HAW!!" Floor and 
walls tremble, dishes dance, eating ceases. Far 
down the hall a green waiter stands as though pet- 
rified, having just poured a bowl of gravy down 
Bill Hodgman's neck! The noise? Hutch is merely 
showing his huge appreciation. Now, this does not 
mean that George is ethereal at all — far from it. 
He is, rather, solid and methodical; we remember 
him as preacher, poet, salesman, debater, high 
diver, and even small town vamp! A place awaits 
him in the Hall of Fame, for he has mastered the 
art of doing things on time. We envy Hutch !

"What'd you give me if I open the door Satur- 
day afternoon?" No, Maynard is not avaricious but 
he does love lady scientists' fudge. He is ready to 
try anything or anyone once, from a moonlight waltz 
to a sermon. He gets all A's in History. Yet, poor 
boy, he can't help it. As a neighbor remarked soon 
after his birth (not long ago, at that), "Too bad 
that boy of Johnson's ain't quite right." This ab- 
normality, sad to say, seems to extend to all other 
subjects on the curriculum.

Carrie is our noisiest, j oiliest, happy-go-luckiest, 
only original bouncing kid. You can't be solemn 
with Carrie. Her one weak spot is her inability 
to get a joke — she can't see the point — never could — 
until you've explained it at least three times, but she 
makes up for her slowness, then, with a mighty 
"Haw, haw! Ain't that a funny joke." And she'll 
try anything once; eh, Carrie?

Bob entered upon his collegiate career with the 
class of 1919, and remained out of college for two 
years in order to take part in the Imperial German 
Government. His scholastic pursuits are charac- 
terized by industry and skilled workmanship; his 
relations with his fellow-students by dignified but 
cordial comradeship; and his philosophy of life by 
an unprejudiced receptiveness to new ideas and a 
vigorous sense of humor.

Two little owls sat on a branch. 

In the moon's Rae through the trees. 

They both shone bright 

For they Don-ned that night 

Phi Beta Kappa keys. 
It is perhaps strange but when we think of Rae, 
we think of Don, and vice versa. They seem 
to complement each other and that, we sup- 
pose, is as it should be. Rae is an easy-going, 
cheerful sort of a person with a charming grin.

Read a good old Southern love story with a hero 
in it who shows all those laudable and gentlemanly 
traits which we admire. Think of a story of the 
North and West with men of strength and daring 
and manhood. Ponder for a few moments over the 
hero of a story of the East, where grace, polish, and 
style abound. "Bill' Langley is the composite of 
all these fine qualities. He is the hero of the story 
come to life; tall, fine-looking, refined, and

Libbey is "Pa" Gould's assistant, yet she seems 
to be withstanding the honor remarkably. She is 
the same sunny little robin who came down from 
her beloved New Hampshire hills where she says 
she leads a wild life in the good old summer-time. 
She's not half so noisy as a "Big Ben," yet she is 
exactly as accurate and even more dependable.

Florence is one of those plucky individuals who, 
when they have a thing to do, will get it done 
though the heavens fall. It isn't every one who can 
hold several offices, work eight days a week in the 
library, give an occasional spread, run away for 
the week-end — and on top of it all wear a Phi Beta 
Kappa key. We who have known her in college, 
predict that whatever career she chooses will prove 
a "shining" one.

Who is the fellow that we see over in the zool- 
ogy laboratory six or eight hours a day, noting a 
few fine points in the embryological development of 
the chick or preparing slides for Pom? We all shall 
watch with interest and admiration his work at Har- 
vard Medic for the next four years, and we know he 
will make some Doctor. But we must not forget 
how Mack can get off with the crack of the gun and 
tear down the cinder path for a hundred or two- 
twenty yard dash. Whose pretty picture is that 
on his desk in 16 Parker? Time will tell.

I dreamed — I dreamed she kidded Ex-President 
Wilson and George Washington. I dreamed I saw 
her on the Midway, or was it opposite Henry 
Irving, or was she the Russian Ballerina? Any- 
way, it was something for which she had trained 
for four years — and thoroughly, too. 

As a matter of fact, Marcelline does everything

will sit up and take notice — for Marcelline gets what

"Did you ever hear anything like it! I gave 
them a piece of my mind ! Why, they're perfect 
fools!" — and Eddie is off again on one of her thrill- 
ing but utterly harmless tirades, while the rest of 
us are doubled up helplessly on the couch. Eddie is 
an enthusiast; whatever appeals to her (and there 
is little indeed that doesn't), brings forth an irre- 
sistible bubbling over of Eddie, and we smile as 
we watch her accomplish things in her busy little 
way. She is very charming, too, as hostess of 
Enkuklios teas and receptions.

Quiet, purposeful, and inordinately cheerful is 
Dot, sometimes called "Dottie" by those who wish to 
show affection and forget the inappropriateness of 
the diminutive. Dot is one of our most logical stu- 
dents — that is to say, she studies logically and her 
notebooks are the neatest of any in the class. 
Success to you, scout; keep right on living in the 
same unobtrusive, worth-while way.

Where's his home town? That's hard to tell, for 
his circle of friends hail from all points along the 
coast. What's his hobby? Ah, Business? That's 
it, an embryonic Wall Street lion. The two years 
that "Lewy" has been with us he has shown himself 
a well-versed lad, and he is bound to be the man of 
the hour. Mr. Moore is a Fine Arts student, and 
maybe that accounts for the admirable collection of 
"Pulchrae Feminse" that cover the walls over his desk.

Who is the man with that wonderful and per- 
suasive voice? ''Brother" Morris. "Ed" stepped 
into our midst as a Junior. No longer does he plow 
his weary way to New Vineyard. To what end? 
To expound the gospel to the natives, of course. 
Yes, but now that "they" are one, he has forsaken 
the monastery for Auburn, and his week-end trips 
take him only as far as South Paris. Morris's ora- 
tory, debating and singing together with his genial 
spirit have won him a place in the hearts of Bates 
men and women.

Isabel was the most promising girl in our class, 
until she met Grandpa. At least she was so consid- 
ered by persons of discernment. Our Izzie is a svelt 
and charming young lady — very Scotch — who is de-

haste. Cheer up, Izzie, they're pleasant while thev

Harry is not the type of man to spend much time 
in advertising his accomplishments. Harry is 
never content unless he is busy. When he has 
not been managing tennis, participating in track 
events or instructing Freshmen at the Chem Lab, he 
has amused himself by doing such things as at- 
tending Shriners' meetings and their frequent 
dances, taking the census for Uncle Sam, and ad- 
ministering the Baptismal rites upon the table ac- 
coutrements of a down-town eating establishment. 
He certainly believes that variety is the spice of

Born Aug. 14, 1897, Boston, Mass.; Jordan High 
School, Lewiston, Me.; Entered Class of 1920; Har- 
vard Radio School. 

Phil is a hard working man. He is not only a 
student and a bluffer, but he spends hours and hours 
every week in a shoe store down town. Faith yes, 
he's a shoe clerk, and whiles away his extra time 
running across to the drug store for sodas. He is 
somewhat of a Spanish shark and has a way with 
the ladies, we have heard it remarked. But he's 
not a ladies' man — not any way you look at it; 
heavens no! He is sensible.

Charlie entered 1921 at the beginning of our 
Junior year, his previous years of study being spent 
at the Bangor Seminary of Theology. He soon 
gained the name of the Apostle on account of his 
week-end preaching trips. Throughout the two 
years that he has been with us he has lived in con- 
sistence with his profession. He is a man of de- 
cided convictions, yet tactful in their application. 
Upon different occasions we have been privileged to 
hear expressions of his musical ability and we 
know that this talent will help him much in his 
chosen profession..

"Perk" is a keen-eyed, clear-headed product of 
the Pine Tree State. Ambition is his middle name. 
Once he makes up his mind to do a thing, you 
may be sure that the thing will be done. While 
"Perk" is not carrying away any keys or prizes for 
scholarship, yet he is a hard-working student, and 
is known as a logical thinker. It is said that he 
has been practising off campus the experience and 
training in public speaking gained in Oratory 
classes. Leon stands well with his classmates and 
is recognized as a man of ability. We know that 
when he gets his sheepskin he will make a name 
for himself in his future work.

"Pete," or "Charlie," whichever you wish to call 
him, is the fellow who always greets his friends 
with a cordial "Hi there" and a pleasant smile. 
And, too, he is one of the most methodical chaps you 
ever saw. In classes he takes no back seat for 
anyone. "Charlie" has participated in one way or 
another in most everything from assistant in sur- 
veying to manager of baseball. Above all things, 
"Charlie Pete" has shattered and cast to the four 
winds "Doc" Britan's theory that there is no such 
thing as love at first sight.

"Say, Irma, where do you keep your rouge? I 
feel like the very deuce, and I've got to see Buzz 
at dinner and if she sees me looking like this — ! 
Well, I'm going to that dance, that's all!" And 
she goes, too. A rather graceful mixture of charm 
and business efficiency is Phil, and a very pleasant 
personage to talk with. We are inclined to believe 
that if she has a hobby it's quoting Bob. You know 
you do, Phil, so don't argue. Any time you are 
desirous of seeing her and have made the mistake 
of coming to Rand, rectify your error by hasting 
to the Qual — ten to one she's there; it's a favorite 
hang-out of hers.

"She wolde weep if that she sawe a mous caught 
in a trappe." "Sh, don't tell a soul." She's raising 
an orphaned family on a pipette. There are white 
ones, gray ones, brown ones, waltzing ones. Semper 
sciential "Oh! Pikey, how could you!" Your smile 
is your most scientific possession. Just think of the 
yards of tissue ribbon it cut from the rotary micro- 
tome! It opens forbidden doors to you, kills your 
cats, feeds your mice, incubates your eggs, counts 
pendulums, mends distilling apparatus, and makes 
100% alcohol. It even swerves "Pom" from his 
path, yet "Pikey" does not realize. She is smiling.

Artist, orator, musician, terpischorean, physicist ! 
George is one of our most versatile performers; 
many an audience has been convulsed by his ready 
flowing wit on the Glee Club trips. He is a com- 
bination of epicurean, pessimist, and diligent stu- 
dent. But this college life is just play for George — 
his real work is as a salesman and he is an expert. 
Upon graduation it is rumored that he has a con- 
tract waiting for him to sell palm leaf fans to the 
Eskimos. We think he will get away with it.

Carleton is a little shy of Rand Hall activities, 
but do not put this down as due entirely to bash- 
fulness. His very name signifies that he has as 
much right there as any other person. Carleton is 
another one of those fellows of whom we see very 
little on the campus except at classes. He is the 
shortest man in the class. His one real objection 
to this is that oftentimes he finds it necessary to 
strike out before breakfast to make connections with 
that seven-forty class. Never mind, Carleton, re- 
member Napoleon.

the refrain. How graceful Gabby is, in her cos- 
tumed folk dancing ! ' How sweetly and yet viva- 
ciously she has engineered Le Petit Salon this year! 
Whatever 1921 has demanded the response has 
always been the same. Never mind, Gabe, Connie 
did get "the shortest girl."

When we think of rock-ribbed isles and balmy 
sea breezes we always think of Mel, for we know 
that salty zephyrs and time enduring granite (the 
surroundings from which Mel came to us) are true 
symbols of vivacity, versatility and sterling worth, 
which qualities are all synonyms for the name Mel. 
He certainly made up admirably for the year that 
he spent away from us. In the sacred halls be- 
neath the shelter of David's Mountain none have 
ever questioned his right of admittance "verboten" 
to its athletic contests.

When "M. P." bursts forth in the above vernac- 
ular, rest assured that he has something beyond 
the realm of the commonplace to relate. He is of 
the open. Mention fishing and immediately he is 
"rearing-to-go." He, too, is a veritable walking 
census. In exactly two minutes, one and three-fifths 
seconds he can give the name and life history of the 
entire population of his home town. Maurice is an 
ardent supporter of all college athletics and backs 
them up to the Nth degree. Maurice is a perfect 
gentleman, and a good fellow well met.

Did you ever stand in the front room of a cot- 
tage by the sea, with the wind blowing a gale out- 
side, when someone opens the door and a gust of a 
sweeping nor'easter swirls in and around, and near- 
ly knocks you over? Or did you ever stand behind 
some convenient shelter and recoil in the face of the 
explosion of a couple of tons of TNT? Or did you 
ever get upon the wrong side of your litter, and 
then be greeted by one that seems to lift you out of 
the depths of despair and perch you on the pinnacle 
of rosy optimism? — If not, you haven't met Kelly — 
our noisy, salty Kelly — as the Rotarians would say, 
"an exemplary peptomist."

Jack's years and even his moments of college life 
may be characterized by one word, CONTRAST, so 
varied are his talents and his deeds. He is the Ace

student and professor as the best known and most 
popular man on or off the campus.

Although not a campus man in the sense of place 
of abode, "Charlie" has made a place for himself 
in many a campus- activity. Particularly does his 
name recall brilliant forensic triumphs over Har- 
vard, Yale, Cornell, and all the rest. As executive of 
several clubs and as a campus citizen he has been a 
genuine hustler.

or take a co-ed wherever she wants to go. Music 
hath its charms but we think he will make a good

that never-to-be-forgotten faculty poker-game rec-

Movie operator, stenog, Politics Club prexy, whist 
expert, cook, warbler of songs, gobbler of Rand Hall 
fudge, choir steerer, — these are a few of this blond 
boy's doings. He is all set to meet life; that old 
smile, that optimism, that courtesy and thoughtful- 
ness for others should pave the way for lasting- 
friendships and success for Charlie, old boy.

Rufus is a happy-go-lucky damsel who is always

time, too. She's a rather breezy young miss and 
very decent when it comes to lending things. By the 
way, Rufus, your room is taking on a rather awful 
aspect since you've taken to playing double Can- 
field; but we've got to hand it to you when it comes 
to skiing, old scout — you're there.

We gaze at thee with awe and wonder. You are 
not the usual kind for a phenomenon of human na- 
ture. In spite of our glances, you are as uncon- 
scious as a celebrity before the movie camera. A 
whisper passes along the back seat in chapel. The 
Freshmen turn and stare. "The 6.30 car from Sa- 
battus for four years and she's still smiling!" How 
soothing your voice was to Pa Gould's disturbed ears 
after our miserable failures. And would you believe 
it? She's the '21 girls' star first baseman.

Why is Maine famous? Spuds. One might at 
first say that, but any deliberation would reveal the 
real reason for the State's prestige — Gardiner. 
And how, you ask, does Gardiner qualify as the 
holder of this pre-eminence? The Sphinx answers, 
S-T-O-N-I-E-R! Essentially a mother of great 
athletes and good fellows, Gardiner combined all the 
virtues of her sons in one shining example, and sent 
to us Jim. She has every reason for her pride 
and so have we, because Jim's many-sided nature, 
his loyalty, generosity, perseverance and fight, has 
brought him fame.

Baseball, 1, 2; Chemistry Assistant, 3, 4; Jordan 
Scientific Society, 3, 4. 

The door opens, "Hello, boys," and in glides "The 
Kid," one of the Lilliputian members of the class. 
Among a host of desirable characteristics his never- 
failing good nature is a most admirable quality. 
Wherever Cracker goes that contagious smile of his 
is sure to cast a beam of sunshine. Roland's spe- 
cialty is chemistry. He is a most faithful disciple of 
Lavoisier, having risen to the position of assistant 
in Hedge Laboratory. In his Junior year he was the 
plucky little captain who made that thrilling end- 
run, tallying the only score which made us victorious 
over the Senior class. 



Born Jan. 13, 1895, Madrid, Maine; Phillips High 
School; Prize Speaker, 1, 2; Cercle Francais, 3; 
Military Science Club, 2, 3, 4; Class Track, 3. 

Orator, student, gentleman, good fellow — these 
are the attributes by which Obie has acquired for 
himself a foremost place in the regard of 1921. 
Those who do not know "Obie" might say that he is 
a pessimist. But such is not True for we know that 
his moments of apparent gloom are merely periods 
of longing for a time when he may return to his be- 
loved home town of Phillips in the beautiful but 
far away Rangeley district of Maine. A gentleman 
in the fullest sense of the word, tasteful in dress, 
quiet in manner and courteous in speech, is it any 
wonder that the class of 1921 is proud to have him 
as a member? 




"Brother to a prince and fellow to a beggar if 
he be found worthy." 

Born in August, 1895, Boston, Mass.; Neute High 
School, Milton, N. H.; Jordan Scientific Society, 3, 
4; Varsity Track, 3, 4; Y. M. C. A., 1, 2, 3, 4. 

A man whose middle name should be persever- 
ance, for never has a fellow shown more persistence 
in realizing worth-while ideals. At college he has 
accomplished much, mentally, physically and socially. 
It is said that he can grow a mustache over night. 
Yes, he looks serious and is indeed quiet, yet he 
fools us all, for his earnest, solemn look masks a 
keen sense of humor which is the delight of all those 
who know him. An excellent student, a good mixer, 
and a true friend — that's Eddie. 


Born Oct. 11, 1898, Bridgton, Maine; Bridgton 
High; Spofford Club; Ramsdell Scientific Society; 
Alethea; Seniority; Y. W. C. A.; Mirror Board; 
Reporter for Bates Student; Bates Student Alumni 
Editor, 4; Proctor at Cheney House, 4; Junior 
Exhibition; Secretary-Treasurer for Spofford Club, 
4; Second Team Hockey, 2. 

When it comes to getting things across, you've 
got to hand it to Connie. Yes indeed, Connie's one 
of the Spoffordites and a very active member. And 
she's able to hold her own as an orator, knows how 
to manage an Alumnus column, shows an admirable 
regard for comparative size relations in judging 
men, has a safe and sane outlook on the senseless 
side of life — in short — yes, to be very brief — Connie 
is a Twenty-oner. 


Born Durham, Me., Mar. 11, 1899; Y. W. C. A.; 
Enkuklios; Orchestra; Macfarlane Club, 3, 4; Man- 
ager Mandolin Club, 4; Assistant in Spanish and 
German, 4. 

What is that merry little brook-like gurgle? 
Only Marian chuckling to herself with unfailing- 
good humor. She can even smile while waiting for 
a Figure Eight. How we used to envy her German 
translations in the days of luxuriant verdure. But 
greatness has its responsibilities, for now she is cor- 
recting German papers. Marian may appear meek 
but ask Lieutenant Black if she can take a dare. 
Remember the night she blew taps first and made 
the S. A. T. C. bugler sound like a poor imitation of 
the real thing after her clear cornet notes? 



Born in Berwick, Maine, April 4, 1894; Sullivan 
High School, Berwick, Maine, 1912; New Hampton 
Literary Institution, 1913; Treasurer Politics Club,

Exhibition; Prize Speaking, 3; Class Day Speaker; 
Honor Student; Senior Exhibition. 

"Daniel" M. Webster came to us in the middle of 
the year 1918. Married and matured, his attitude 
toward his college activities has been one of purpose- 
ful and resolute application. Along with a very 
creditable scholastic career he has, during his stay 
at Bates, ministered to the Baptist church in Wool- 
wich, Maine. In athletics he looks down upon all 
comers, having won for Bates and the class of '21 
his full share of interclass and collegiate honors. We 
wish him the success due his sincerity, helpfulness 
and earnest endeavors. 


Born Aug. 19, 1898, Freeman, Maine; Kingfield

Do you want to do Spanish, play tennis, go to 
"Qual," or buy chocolate? Just go to Clarice, with 
a cheerful grin she will fulfil every demand. Do you 
want to see stars? Then get in her way when she 
is after that basketball and you will see them all. 
Sturdy and staunch, Clarice is one of the best "all- 
around" girls in our class. Y. W., athletics or so- 
ciety finds a willing worker in her. We know that 
you will earn your white cap with honors at Johns 
Hopkins, Clarice, and we only ask that you do not 
"treat 'em too rough." 


Born Auburn, Maine, April 19, 1898; Edward

Mirror Board; Greek Play. 

Here comes Norma, a white and gold and pink 
mixture of efficiency and good looks, striding grace- 
fully toward Monie's English, as the last bell rings. 
Goff Hill is hard, Norma, but good experience withal, 
and the training did you much good in class ath- 
letics. We have our doubts as to anything being 
beyond your reach, and when it comes to putting 
things through, well, Norma, you're there. 



Born Feb. 28, 1898; Portland High School; En- 
kuklios; Y. W. C. A., Treasurer, 4; Phil-Hellenie, 
Secretary-Treasurer, 2; Seniority; Althea; Port- 
land Club; English Assistant, 3, 4; Red Cross, Sec- 
retary-Treasurer, 2. 

"Oh, it's perfectly wonderful!" Look out! It's 
highly contagious! One long drink at the fountain 
of Mil's ever-bubbling enthusiasm is warranted to 
cure all blues, and to sustain one through any 
desert of Y. W. C. A. bazaars, or over a mountain 
of Sophomore forensics. Mil, the only specimen out 
of captivity that has gone through Bates on a sched- 
ule. Yet she never hesitated to break it to go on a 
hike or a spree. 


Born July 29, 1897, Dover, N. H.; Sanford High 
School, Sanford, Me.; Varsity Football B, 1, 2, 3, 4;

Yea, Wig! For the benefit of those who so much 
as never glance at the papers, evince not the slight- 
est interest in athletics, we beg to present for their 
acquaintance, Carleton Low Wiggin, athlete par ex- 
cellence, student par greater excellence and good 
fellow by greatest excellence. Judging by his ver- 
satility in four years of college activities, "Wig" 
has nothing to fear from the gentler sex or the cold, 
cruel world. 



Born Nov. 6, 1896, Bolster's Mills, Maine; South 
Paris High School; Class Marshal, 2; Jordan Sci- 
entific Society, 4; Military Science Club, 3, 4; Jor- 
dan Scientific Society Exhibition Committee, 4;

101st U. S. Engineers; Mirror Board. 

Here is an all-round man of 1921. When speak- 
ing of his relations with the opposite side of Col- 
lege Street he is rather reticent. As his record may 
infer, "Don" is quite a scientist and as such it is 
not strange that he has the aforesaid character- 
istics. In addition to all this, he finds time not only 
to attain a very high average in ranks but also time 
to get the best out of life. 



Born Averill, Vermont, Nov. 1, 1898; Groveton 
High School, Groveton, N. H.; Editor-in-Chief, 
Bates Student; Secretary Debating Council; Phil- 
Hellenic Club; Politics Club, 3, 4; Forum, 3, 4; 
Sophomore Prize Debater; Phi Beta Kappa; Honor 

This son of New Hampshire who entered with 
us in 1917 was so extremely quiet that we hardly 
knew him until some of his exploits leaked out. 
Loys is undoubtedly one of our best students, hav- 
ing received the Phi Kappa honor which honor we 
all envy him. Although rather modest he is indeed 
a real live wire. As editor-in-chief of the Bates 
Student he made a name for himself by showing his 
efficiency as a business man. Still waters run deep, 
therefore perhaps this will assist those who wish to 
know him better. 


Born Colebrook, N. H., Feb. 28, 1897; New Bed- 
ford High School; Class Marshal, 1, 3; Commons 
Committee, 1; Student Council, 1, 2; Secretary Y. 
M. C. A., 2; President Macfarlane Club, 2; College 
Orchestra and Band; Military Science Club, 2; 
Glee Club, 2; Varsity Tennis, 1, 2, 3, 4, Captain, 4;

2; Winner of Freshman Tennis Tournament; As- 
sistant in Mathematics, 2, 3 ; Assistant in Physics 
and Geology, 4; Honor Student; Phi Beta Kappa. 

"Don" was one of the first to come into promi- 
nence in our class by winning the Freshman Tennis 
Tournament. When we notice the honors he has 
won and the assistantships held we know that Bates 
will miss this member of our class and the com- 
munity into which he goes will receive a worker. 



Born in Topsfield, Mass., Sept. 16, 1898; Danvers 
High School, Mass.; Leader Mandolin Club, 4; As- 
sistant Manager Track, 3; Military Science Club, 
3, 4; Class Baseball, 1; Football, 3; Hockey, 2, 3, 4;

Bob is a bona fide member of the class, having 
been one of its number through four happy years. 
As an athlete he has served his class in every de- 
partment. As a producer of jazz music he is unex- 
celed. His services are sought far and near. Withal, 
he has found time to be a good fellow on both sides 
of the campus. Bob is a hard worker, otherwise he 
would not be a true '21 man. We will always re- 
member him as a ready sport, a live wire and a 
good friend. 



Born Richmond, Maine, March 24, 1899; Rich- 
mond High; Y W. C. A.; Enkuklios. 

Here comes Evelyn, tripping lightly along from 
the library. Yes, she works hours over there, and 
is always cheerful and smiling when you see her, 
too. How do you do it, Evelyn, always so happy and 
satisfied? By the way, who is that with her? One 
of the Bukers; doubtless she knows which one, 
though it hasn"t always been so doubtless, we have 
heard. Evelyn is quiet but not silent. You don't 
know the difference? Well, come into Fran's room 
some evening and find out. 



Born in Lewiston, Maine, Dec. 14, 1899; Jordan 
High School, Lewiston, Maine; Sophomore Prize De- 
bate; Forum, 3; Debating Council, 4. 

Here we have Carl Young; we haven't much on 
this boy. A man of few words unless discussing 
some favorite topic, then a steady flow of logical 
argument. It seems to be second nature for him t:> 
use his persuasive powers. That he does not spend 
his time uselessly is evident from the fact that he 
is always busily occupied when on the campus. He 
is an ardent pursuer of "Monie's" English and Prof. 
"Mac's" Education. It seems to be the idea of some 
that to be a big man it is necessary to be a great 
athlete of one kind or another. However, we are 
sure that "Youngie" will make up for this accom- 
plishment by winning renown through knowledge 
of other things. Although Carl has not lived with 
us on the campus, those who know him think he is 
as cordial and genial a friend as one could wish to 



Born Evart, Michigan, Aug. 18, 1898; attended 
High School, Harpers Ferry, W. Vir; left Bates 
November, 1918; served in Aviation Corps, San 
Antonio, Texas; died Feb. 1, 1918. 

"Danny" was with us only a year, but most of 
us knew him and loved him for his sunny disposi- 
tion, his big, fine, manly ways, and his true South- 
ern courtesy. He was big in mind as well as in 
body, a good student, an earnest Christian, and a 
real gentleman. He left us early in his second year 
to serve his country, and before another year had 
passed he left us for his final home. It is a matter 
of grief and pride to the class that Dan Newcomer 
of '21 died for his country. 


On the death of Frank Dorner, the Class of 1921 
lost one of its most enthusiastic and popular mem- 
bers. From the time that he entered college he was 
known all over the campus for his bounding good- 
nature and "pep." His ready smile and helping 
hand won him friends universally. No party on 
either side of the campus was complete without him. 
In the summer of 1918 Frank enlisted in the Naval 
Reserve and was on active duty until he returned 
to Bates to grace the ranks of our quota of that 
branch of service. His experience together with 
his enthusiasm and good nature made him one of 
our most efficient "non-coms." The whole class, the 
whole college, mourned his untimely death, and 
now cherish the memory of him, a student, a class- 
mate, and a friend.

An ancient philosopher, 
Xylophone, we believe, his name, 
Once made the ringing remark, 
'History repeats itself." 
So with '22, 

Pursuing its way from the 
Cradle of freshmanhood 

The grave of seniorhood 
As a happy and powerful unit 
In every phase of Bates life, 
'Tis the Class of the 
Working Majority! 
Good phrase, that! 
Q. E. D.? 

Gather the Leading Lights — 
Heh ! More highbrow stuff — 
In athletics, debating, music, 
In belles lettres, whatever they are; 
In bid whist, pool, and lesser 

And there's yo' 
Working Majority 
Of '22 men and women ! 
Class parties? 
Ours are noted for 
'Gip" (a la Russ Taylor.) 
Yes, we're a happy 

And we're going to be

When we are graduated — 

We leave behind our

We, the Class of '23, have completed our second year at Bates, a year 
of many changes, of many lessons learned, but withal a year of broader 
friendships and closer comradeship. 

We came to Bates in the fall of 1919 as the largest class ever entered, 
not only in numbers but also in enthusiasm. Our propensities for getting 
into water, both hot and cold, have never been equalled. Those members 
who felt the soothing waters of Lake Andrews early determined to instill 
the same calm of the watery wave upon the next class. 

Our spirit has increased, but our number has been sadly depleted due 
to matrimony and other failings. We began our Sophomore year by 
trying to carry out a new program for initiating the Freshmen. Athletic 
contests and prescribed initiations were substituted for the usual hazing. 
Although we felt the loss of those who were compelled to take up other 
work, those who remained won the Interclass Track Meet last fall. With 
the girls' help the boys also won first place in the Outing Club Carnival, not 
to mention a few B's in Pa Gould's history course. 

We look back over the last two years seeing our failures and successes. 
We look forward to the next two years with an earnest purpose to make the 
most of ourselves here, that we may honor Bates when we leave her halls 
to serve in the greater work outside.

THE CLASS of 1924 

IS VERY proud 

OF THE "Grand Old Man" 

WHO'S IN our big class picture — 

THE "GRAND Old Man" 

WHO HAS passed on 

AND WE ARE also proud 

TO BE THE largest class 

THAT EVER entered Bates. 

WE THINK we're good, in 

FACT, WE know we are. 

EVER SINCE that Y. M. 

RECEPTION, where "I was" 

AND "You were" 

TO THIS glorious day, 

WHEN WE become Sophs, 

WE THINK we've conducted ourselves 

WITH THE modesty 

BECOMING to verdant Freshmen. 

AND WE'VE had some fine times — 

THAT JAZZY Class Ride 

WHERE INCIPIENT twosomes acted 

ACCORDING to Hoyle. , 

AND THEN our Class Party 

WITH MORE twosomes 


AL JOLSON off the map. 

AND YOU must admit 

THAT OUR class is an example 

OF THE SURVIVAL of the fittest. 

AND WE select few that 

REMAIN TO grace old '24 

DO HUMBLY acknowledge with 

GRATEFUL hearts 

THE INSPIRATION and guidance 

OF THE staid old Seniors 

WHO ARE now "rolling on."

Jordan Scientific Society, founded in 1910, has progressed until its 
position among Bates' clubs is enviable. The purpose of the society, as 
stated in the preamble of its constitution, is "to promote and further 
interest in science ; to inspire the spirit of research ; and to increase the 
scope of college instruction." Membership is limited to thirteen Seniors 
and five Juniors, and every applicant must present high recommendations 
from the heads of science departments. 

At the bi-monthly meetings, members present papers on subjects in 
which they are particularly interested. Often the speakers obtain first- 
hand information by working during their vacations in factories and labor- 
atories. For the past year, many papers have dealt with the industrial 
application of scientific principles to commercial enterprises. At one open 
meeting, Mr. L. B. Costello pointed out the aid that science has given to 
rapid communication in Gathering the News. In addition to open meet- 
ings, it is the policy of the society to present occasional educational motion 

The annual scientific exhibition which is held every year, offers a very 
unique and entertaining method of demonstrating in striking fashion the 
highly advanced course of science at Bates. One night of this is devoted to 
preparatory school pupils, and is attended by delegations from all over the 
state. Carnegie is peopled with competent guides to demonstrate anything 
from the dissection of a cat to the effect of radium or X-ray. 

The society must always be deeply indebted to our late Dr. Jordan, its 
beloved founder and sponsor.

Spofford Club, organized in 1910 under leadership of Prof. Spofford 
for whom it was named, is unique among Bates clubs for the sustained 
interest which makes possible its weekly meetings. For more satisfactory 
criticism, the number of members is limited to fifteen, chosen from the 
three upper classes for originality and excellence in some branch of writing. 

The regular programs never become monotonous — there are short 
stories, vers libre and verse otherwise, dramas, essays, formal and personal, 
and even scenarios and musical comedy. A few titles are suggestive of 
the work: Leaves, The Diary of a Man Who Is Losing His Mind; Scene 
in the Rialto of Edgewater; Femininity; Just a Group of Old Maids; Smoke 
Rings; Hey Gusl; Semper Scientia; Marya, Song of the Lost One; You 
Tell Us, Ouija; Librarian's Day; Squire's Husking; They That Walk in 
Darkness; Basket of Chrysanthemums; The Sun; A String of Pearls. 

Occasionally a semi-social meeting is substituted, as when last fall a 
camp supper was held by the river, where each member presented a bit of 
original work. A part of the yearly work is Spofford Night, late in May, 
when through the medium of dramas, interspersed with the reading of a 
story or poem or two, the club tries to give the college and its friends an 
idea of its work as well as genuine entertainment. 

Not only to Prof. Spofford, its founder, but also to Prof. Baird, its 
faculty member, the club acknowledges much.

The purpose of the Politics Club as set forth in its constitution is, in 
short, "to provide an opportunity for the discussion of economic problems 
and to investigate social and political problems of the present day." The 
Society was founded in 1912 by the backing of Professor Gould. Its mem- 
bership is limited to twenty men from the two upper classes, and its 
regular meetings are held every other week. 

This year the club has had more open meetings than ever before in 
its history. In these open meetings the club has brought to the campus 
such men as Baron Korff, who spoke on the Russian situation, and Hon. 
R. A. McCauley, presidential candidate on the Single Tax ticket last elec- 
tion. The club has put on two debates, the first on the merits of the two 
presidential candidates, and the last debate between Dr. Harry W. Laidler, 
secretary of the Intercollegiate Socialist Society, and Prof. Carroll, on 
socialism, which was a chance to get a thorough understanding of this 
important current problem. The other meetings of the club are varied 
with talks by club members and by some of our own faculty. In addition 
to its regular work, is the annual ladies' night and the club banquet, 
which has proved a great success.

The Military Science is one of the most active societies on the Campus. 
Its primary object, as the name implies, is a thorough study of military 
science in all of its phases. Many very interesting talks are given by 
members, especially those who have taken active part in the World V/ar, 
and in this way the application of the theory is well illustrated. The 
society is becoming more and more popular every year. At present it con- 
sists of twenty-six active members. 

For the great success with which it has met the society is indebted to 
Dr. Tubbs. It was he who organized the society and his interest in its 
welfare is becoming greater from year to year. At present he is deliver- 
ing a series of lectures on the World War, starting from the first battle 
and explaining the military importance of each battle. He is constantly in 
search of the truth about military affairs and is always eager to impart 
his knowledge to the society.

Phil-Hellenic is one of the livest clubs on the campus, but because of the 
scarcity of open meetings is not so well known as some of the others. All 
the members, however, are enthusiastic about the work that is done. The 
main purpose of the society is two-fold: to keep alive an interest in the 
classics, and to further an understanding of the social attitude and condi- 
tions of modern Greeks in America. To assist in carrying out the first 
aim, a lecturer from Athens was secured to give an illustrated lecture on 
Greece, and to promote intimacy and mutual understanding between the 
college folk and the Greeks of Lewiston the annual reception was held with 
unusual success. The activities of the club are manifold. Other speakers 
have been secured this year, among whom were Dr. Tubbs, who lectured on 
What the Greeks Have Given to Astronomy, and a local man, Mr. Petro- 
polis, who spoke on his first experiences in America. The club will carry 
through their successful line of endeavor with their annual Symposium late 
in the spring.

Since 1915, we have been acknowledging many of our good times to 
Enkuklios ; possibly because its membership includes all the girls accounts 
for the fact that its social occasions are so particularly successful. Its pur- 
pose is broadening every year, and in addition to its first endeavor of fur- 
nishing social diversions, it now has taken upon itself the proper introduc- 
tion of the new students to college life. 

First in the fall came the Freshman initiation party which far sur- 
passed its principal aim by furnishing an evening of unusual fun and jol- 
lity. A bit later was an informal tea to the faculty ladies by the Juniors 
and Seniors which was an excellent opportunity for getting acquainted. 
Then was the informal party in the Gym, and on Washington's birthday the 
annual reception, to which friends and relatives are invited. Later, in 
June, there will be an outdoor party. 

A large place, then, Enkuklios fills in our "mem" books and we're not 
likely to forget it.

On the second and fourth Thursdays of every month, Fiske room be- 
longs to the Seniority, which seldom finds reason to omit any of its meet- 
ings. This society aims "to promote literary taste and ability" through the 
reading and criticism of various works and once in a while an original 
production. Membership depends upon rank in English courses, and the 
past year has taken in those Seniors who have maintained a straight B, 
and five Juniors, chosen to carry on the society. 

Among the various authors whose lives and works have been discussed 
are Emerson and James Whitcomb Riley, and among modern plays that of 
John Drinkwater's Abraham Lincoln. There has been one open meeting, 
a Contest of Wits, which proved to be original and entertaining. The 
Kleptomaniac was very successfully presented to the college on the same 
evening as Alethea's offering. 

This society has a genuine place to fill and is certain to continue as one 
of the most important of the girls' organizations.

Alethea, the reorganized form of U. A. C. C, founded in 1914, is com- 
posed of Junior and Sophomore girls interested in literature, music, and art. 
Programs have been given this year on many phases of work, including such 
subjects as War Poetry, American Contemporary Drama, and Telling 
Stories to Children. In the line of dramatics, Alethea has successfully 
produced at Hathorn Hall a one-act farce entitled Just a Little Mistake, 
combining with the play of Seniority to make an "Evening of Fun." The 
purpose of the club is broad enough to give play to the particular capacities 
of the members, and dances, readings and musical selections have been 
enjoyed at the meetings. One meeting has been given over entirely to 
original literary work. While the scope of the club is thus large and unre- 
stricted, its work has been enjoyable and efficient.

"Le Petit Salon," founded in 1917, is composed of those students who 
are especially interested in the study of the French language. Its object 
is to promote a greater enthusiasm for French literature and for France. 
The meetings are held bi-monthly; they take the form of a literary and 
social gathering. Each year the members try to present a French play 
before the whole college and, thus far, they have been very successful. The 
membership is limited to thirty-five and each one has to take an active 
part in its program during the year. The interest in the meetings is keen, 
and the club keeps alive its ambitious progress by means of pertinent dis- 
cussions. Originality is encouraged, and variety is the keynote of the 
society's success.

Secretary -Treasurer, Arlene H. Pike, 


Many of the Juniors and Seniors of 1919. and 1920 spent every spare 
moment enveloped in laboratory coats, and their devotion to science was 
so great that they felt they should have some opportunity to meet and 
discuss the latest developments of their particular branch of science. Dur- 
ing its first year, Professor Ramsdell, the sponsor of the society, talked in 
such an interesting manner concerning the fourth dimension that he was 
asked to repeat the lecture in 1921. The membership consists of fifteen 
from the two upper classes upon faculty recommendation in two or more 
branches of science or two consecutive recommendations in the same de- 
partment. Those represented are Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathe- 
matics, and Forestry. 

Every first and third Thursday evening, the traditions of Bates are 
broken and Carnegie Science Hall is invaded by the girls. One of the most 
helpful lectures so far this year was Photography by Dr. Whitehorne, who 
brought much tangible evidence of his qualifications to speak on the sub- 
ject. Some recent uses of selenium, especially in radio-photography, notes 
on the metric system, the relation of Genesis I to science, are a few sub- 
jects of the characteristic papers presented by members of the society. 
Much discussion has taken place concerning conferring the B.S. degree to 
the women of Bates College. 

Trips to the Turner Center Creamery, Huston Bakery, and the Bates 
Manufacturing Company are being arranged for the spring.

Macfarlane Club is one of the youngest musical clubs on the campus. 
Four years ago this spring several students undertook the founding of a 
club to create a love and appreciation for good music and its cultural and 
aesthetic values. The club was named after Mr. Will C. Macfarlane, former 
Municipal Organist of Portland, Maine. 

At first the membership was limited to twelve active members and five 
honorary members, including Mr. Macfarlane himself. Since then, how- 
ever, it has been increased to twenty-four. 

In the semi-monthly meetings both honorary and active members 
participate. Papers and biographies of the leading composers, discussions 
of the technical and scientific phases of the art, and individual renderings, 
vocal and instrumental, are features of the work.

The college year 1920-1921 has been one of marked development for 
the Outing Club. The club has had snowshoes, skiis, and toboggans for 
the use of its members, although unfortunately the mildness of the win- 
ter has made it impossible to use the equipment as much as would other- 
wise have been the case. All winter, the club has kept the ice on Lake 
Andrews clear of snow in order that the student body might have an oppor- 
tunity to skate. 

The Carnival was the crowning event of the winter season. It occu- 
pied three days — Feb. 24, 25, and 26 — and was a most successful affair, 
showing a marked improvement over the first season's carnival. The 
snowshoeing, skiing, and skating stunts, the hockey game followed by a 
general skate, and the culmination in the Carnival Masquerade, are inci- 
dents long to be remembered. 

The entire season's activities of the club have been highly successful, and 
the possibilities for future improvement are unlimited. It is the ambi- 
tion of the organization to make Bates known for its Outing Club and 
winter sports. 


Uatea Sforum

Secretary -Treasure?", Gladys F. Hall, '21 

In 1919, a new organization, the Bates Forum, came into existence on 
the campus, conceived in the freedom of speech, and dedicated to the propo- 
sition that both men and women of Bates should have a chance to express 
their opinions on current subjects and discuss them freely. 

Since that time, the Forum has steadily expanded and increased its 
effectiveness in the line of work which it planned. Those students who 
have given evidence of unusual ability in debating have become members. 
Constant efforts have been made through bi-monthly meetings to under- 
stand more fully the various forces working in the society in which we 
live. There has also been time for the consideration of Bates' debating 
achievements. No account of the Forum's activities would be complete 
without mentioning the History of Bates' Debating, prepared by one of 
its members. Not only unique and unusual was this work but one of 
lasting value. Professor Carroll has entertained the society with various 
accounts of the Log Cabin Period of forensic achievements at Bates. 
Indeed, all that pertains to debating has been considered. 

As for the future, it is hoped that the scope of work may be broadened 
and that the Forum may become not only the radiating center for enthusi- 
astic support for debating, but may be the most worth while organization 
on the campus.

This year the girls' musical clubs have worked under great difficulties, 
for it has been unusually hard to find necessary time for rehearsals, but 
they have come through in fine fashion, surpassing anything that has 
hitherto been accomplished by their organizations. 

Together they have already given one concert out of town and are 
arranging a program to give others on a trip to various places in the 
vicinity of the college. 

Much credit is due to the faithful work of the leaders and particularly 
to the help and direction of Mr. Goss, the director of the choir, who gives 
personal attention to the work of the clubs. 

If the work of the organizations is carried on with the spirit of this 
year, we predict an increasingly successful future.

The Bates College Choir renders valuable service and is appreciated by 
the student body. It furnishes music for the daily meetings in chapel and 
also for vesper and other religious services held throughout the year. 
Much credit for the success of the organization belongs to the helpful 
efforts of Mr. Goss, its musical director, for by means of his exceptional 
ability this group of non-professional singers has been accomplishing 
extraordinary results. 

The citizens of Lewiston are also keenly appreciative of the college 
choir and throng the chapel to hear the cantatas given in different years. 
This year the cantata was Steiner's Crucifixion and was perhaps the best 
ever offered. 

It is the opinion of the student body that the college choir holds a fore- 
most place among the organizations of the college.

Manager, Elwood Ireland, '22 

Gtee Club Leader, Kenneth Steady, '21 

Mandolin Club Leader, Robert Woodbury, 


The Bates Glee and Mandolin Clubs under the respective leaderships of 
Mr. Kenneth Steady and Mr. Robert Woodbury, enjoyed one of the most 
successful seasons in the history of these combined organizations. Mr. 
Elwood Ireland, the manager, planned a trip which included Roxbury, 
Hingham, Woburn, Topsfield, and with the closing concert at Portland. 
Good-sized audiences greeted the men at each of these concerts, and the 
success of the trip may be seen from the fact that return concerts were 
asked for in more than one of these cities. 

The concert program was well up to the standard set in former years ; 
by many it was thought to surpass anything ever put on heretofore. Mr. 
George Duncan and Mr. Carl Rounds, the readers, scored emphatically at 
every performance ; Mr. Maynard Moulton, the demon xylophone artist, 
was a scintillant solo star ; the glee club was as much a success as ever ; the 
mandolin club strummed its way into the hearts of the feminine portion 
of each audience; without a hitch the entire program was a smooth- 
working unit from initial chord to final note of the Alma Mater. The 
final concert in Lewiston gave the student body a chance to hear the clubs, 
and a gratifying number turned out. This last appearance of the season 
was under the patronage of the local Bates Alumni Club, and was marked 
by an innovation, in that the women of the college were permitted to 
remain at the dance following the program.

The Student Council consists of four Seniors, three Juniors, two Sopho- 
mores, and one Freshman — elected the latter part of the year. Its work 
is both arbitrary and executive in nature. Full power for dealing sum- 
marily and effectively with cases warranting severe treatment is invested 
in the Student Council by the college authorities. Acting upon the suppo- 
sition that the Council is thoroughly representative of the four classes, 
its authority extends not only over cases concerning Freshmen and Sopho- 
mores but over cases involving Juniors and Seniors as well. 

At the beginning of this college year a week known as the Freshman 
Initiation Period was successfully staged. The program consisted of vari- 
ous athletic events between the two classes involving physical contact of 
no uncertain type. The week ended up with a banquet attended by the 
Freshmen and Sophomores and the members of the Student Council. Time 
alone is needed to develop and perfect a system whereby the old Sopho- 
more-versus-Freshman instinct will be thoroughly satisfied in no tame and 
toneless manner but without the oftentimes harmful results caused by the 
thoughtless hazing of the past. 

The Student Council has had the whole-hearted cooperation of the col- 
lege faculty and student body throughout the entire year.

Dissatisfaction with the present regime and Miss Niles' faith in the 
girls as illustrated by their faithfulness in carrying out training rules for 
the various teams, led to a very beneficial change in the organization of 
Student Government. After many months of hard work and numberless 
investigations of the organizations of other colleges, Miss Buswell and 
Miss Niles submitted the results of their tasks to President Gray and a 
committee of the student body. The plan was perfected by these individ- 
uals and enthusiastically accepted by the girls. 

On the 8th of March, 1921, Student Government went into effect with 
Miss Niles and Mrs. Pomeroy as their very efficient faculty advisors, and 
since that time has solved the problems of noisy halls and more serious 
infractions. Incidentally this has done away with many of the old-time 
needless rules. 

Student Government has a most enthusiastic backing from the girls, 
and all feel certain that this is an organization which will become a perma- 
nent part of Bates College.

The scope of the Debating Council is wholly business. Not only does 
it arrange the intercollegiate contests, but it determines the college debat- 
ing policy and manages interscholastic debates. 

During the present year the Council arranged and carried on the inter- 
collegiate debates with Yale and Harvard Universities and attempted to 
secure a debate with the University of Pennsylvania. In interscholastic 
debating the Council has made the year the most successful in the College's 
history. From a triple-triangular league of nine schools, the league was 
developed into a combination of forty-five schools including the largest 
schools in Maine. By promoting debating in our secondary schools, Bates 
brings to the college many able debaters who become upholders of Bates' 
forensic record. 

The work of the Council is heavy, and its opportunity for service to 
the college in maintaining the famous Bates record of thirty-nine victories 
in fifty forensic contests, is unlimited.

The Y. M. C. A. this year has been attempting as always to serve the 
men on the campus in its usual channels of helpfulness. In the fall the 
annual membership campaign was held, and a great majority of the Fresh- 
men enrolled either as active or associate members. The customary vol- 
untary study groups were started soon after the opening of college with a 
large enrollment from all of the classes. An unusual amount of interest, 
due in large part to the hearty cooperation of the faculty leaders, was 
evidenced by the regular attendance at the weekly meetings, which lasted 
until the Christmas recess. 

Plans are now under way for a series of Association meetings on the 
subject of The Better Citizenship. Various types of leaders will be 
secured for these meetings — all representative men in their own lines, such 
as judges, lawyers, state legislators, doctors, ministers, industrial workers, 
and newspaper editors. It is also hoped that a forum lecture and discus- 
sion course can be arranged on topics relating to America's attitude toward 
the Far East question. This course will be open to all men of the college, 
and will meet in Chase Hall Monday evenings for an hour after supper 
under the leadership of different capable men. 

Early in 1921 an institute in "Practical Evangelism" was held for two 
days in Chase Hall by Dr. Henry Wright of Yale, and representatives from 
Bowdoin, Colby, and Bates were fortunate to be present at the five lectures 
of this institute.

Wednesday nights come clean sheets, ice-cream, and Y. W. This most 
vital organization for the purpose of leading people to Christ was 
reorganized this year on the new basis of personal pledges instead of for- 
mer church membership, and has an enrollment of one hundred and sixty 
active members. 

Attendance has been very high this year, and the range of the meetings 
has been very broad. Tableaux were given to express the work of the 
various departments of the Cabinet. Miss Mabel Googins spoke of her 
work in Syria to help instill the spirit of Christ. There have been Maqua 
rallies with the characteristic songs, industrial meetings, New Year reso- 
lutions, January clearance sales, and talks by Dr. Tubbs. Who that attended 
the Y. W. C. A. circus and heard the wild man roar and ate of the fac- 
ulty food at the Y. W. Bazaar can forget the Y. W. C. A.? Our success 
in cooperating with the city association is helping the work of American- 
ization by teaching every night, classes of French, Greek, and Lithuanian 
industrial girls, by presenting musicales for their entertainment, and by 
learning from them the heart of old world culture. At the Old Ladies' 
Home a song service is held every Sunday afternoon ; girl reserves are 
being trained as leaders ; foreign work has been generously contributed

For the year 1920-1921, this committee has not only made a financial 
success and has received practically no complaints on the food but has also 
charged lower board than any other college in New England. These 
achievements have been due in large part to Professor Gould, who has 
given unsparingly of his time and advice. Mrs. Hilton is not only an effi- 
cient buyer and a snappy, energetic manager, but has won the love and 
good-will of all the boys, who have given her the beloved title of "Mother 
Hilton." The work of Mrs. Stevens is also highly commendable. 

This loyal, enterprising group has been very zealous in their efforts to 
maintain the highest possible attendance at the Commons and thus reduce 
overhead expenses to a minimum. All complaints have been thoroughly 
and cheerfully investigated, and efforts made to make the suggested 
changes and readjustments. 

It is only by a. whole-souled support of this college function that such 
satisfactory results have been obtained.

The Bates Student is the only real students' paper on the campus, and 
as such, is the only medium of expression that is open to the entire college. 
Edited weekly throughout the college year, it is awaited by every student 
as the only means of keeping up with all branches of college activities, and 
in the end, cut up and fitted in, its news columns find their way into the 
"Mem" books which are packed away after four years but are invariably 
brought out again more times than we care to admit. Of course, the 
alumni column has now been dropped in favor of the new Alumnus, which 
covers the ground much more satisfactorily, since it has more space and 
can be edited for one type of subscribers only. 

For the year 1920, the paper was managed and edited by members of 
1921, and from a financial and editorial viewpoint, their work has been 
successful. The paper has changed somewhat from its form in previous 
years. A local column of jokes and pertinent anecdotes was introduced, 
which made a decided hit with the student body at least. The magazine 
department was carried on with its monthly publications; and though its 
readers were not so many as the weekly, nevertheless it is felt by many 
that it fulfils the purpose of encouraging and presenting the literary 
interests of the college. 

The class of 1921 wishes to thank the college and outside friends for 
the support they have received in this enterprise.

This year's Mirror management was a departure from the plan of 
former Boards, and, we believe, a distinct step in advance for the produc- 
tion of the most economical and most satisfactory college annual. Instead 
of an editor-in-chief with his board of subordinate workers such as we 
have had in previous years, our organization this year was made up of 
coordinated editors, each supreme in his own department and in absolute 
charge of his committee of sub-editors. From their own number of five, 
the Board elected a chairman for purposes of occasional conferences where 
policies of the various departments were discussed. If, however, a dis- 
agreement on any point should have arisen, though in this year's manage- 
ment this was not necessary, the question was to be submitted before a 
class meeting for the vote of the entire group. In this way, the class has 
felt more than ever before that in this check which it held, it has kept its 
"finger in the pie," and that both the great amount of work on the office 
of editor-in-chief but also an undue authority on the part of one man, has 
been by this means obviated. 

With the issue of 1917, the Mirror became not a class book as it had 
been in previous years, but a college annual, representing more or less 
fully the activities and interests of the entire college. Although its pro- 
duction each year must mean not only a fairly large sum of money but 
also much time and labor on the part of not a few of the board members, 
we feel that it fills a very definte place in our lives as undergraduates, and 
later on, as alumni.

The President of the Oxford Debating Union asks Bates to meet her in 
debate at Oxford Union the 16th of June. This is the first international 
college debate. The question: This House approves the American policy 
of non-intervention in European affairs. The team: Robert B. Watts, '21, 
Charles M. Starbird, '21, and Edward A. Morris, '21. 

Bates 3; Harvard 0; January 15, 1921 
Bates vs. University of Pennsylvania, Feb. 19, 1921 


JntmoUegiate ©ebattng 

The year 1920-1921 has been a most successful one for Bates debating 
teams. With victories over Cornell and Harvard during 1919-1920, as an 
impetus, the Debating Council drew up a program which was even harder 
for 1920-1921. Yale and Harvard were secured as opponents, and both 
were defeated by unanimous decisions. 

The Yale debate came December 11th on the question — Resolved: That 
the A. B. C. powers should be invited by the United States to cooperate in 
the establishment of a joint protectorate over Haiti. The Bates team, 
which upheld the negative, was composed of William E. Young '24, Charles 
M. Starbird '21, and Robert B. Watts '22. So marked was the superiority 
of the Bates men over their opponents, that the audience fully expected the 
unanimous decision for the negative, which the judges rendered. 

The Harvard debate came January 15th on the question — Resolved : 
That the government should own and operate the coal mines. Again Bates 
upheld the negative and again received the unanimous decision of the 
judges. The winning team consisted of Edward A. Morris '21, Aurie I. 
Johnson '22, and Robert B. Watts '22. 

These most recent victories make the Bates record even more unusual. 
At present Bates teams have participated in fifty intercollegiate contests, 
and have won thirty-nine of these arguments. That she is capable of 
meeting teams from far larger institutions, is shown most conclusively by 
the past two years' records. 

A third debate was arranged for February 19th with the University 
of Pennsylvania on the coal mine question. The same team which won 
from Harvard was to have debated Pennsylvania, but the latter — on hear- 
ing of the victory over Harvard — refused to carry out their agreement to 
debate. Princeton also agreed to debate, but was unwilling to do so under 
the usual conditions — insisting that twenty-four hours' preparation by 
both teams was the only way she could debate. Numerous other colleges 
and universities have challenged Bates during the year, including Boston 
College, Holy Cross, Boston University, and Georgetown. 

Aside from conducting these intercollegiate contests, the Council 
arranged for debates between some thirty high schools and academies 
throughout the State. These schools were arranged into triangles and the 
first contests held in March. The nine schools which won in the first con- 
tests were invited to come to the college and on April 15th, these schools 
met in the semi-finals and finals of the high school league. Foxcroft Acad- 
emy finally won, and thereby has possession of the Bates Debating League 
Cup for one year. This work of the Council aroused much interest in 
debating in the schools, and the finals brought many possible prospective 
students to the Campus as guests of the College and Council. 

Already the Council is formulating a program for next year which 
promises to be as aggressive as that of this year. We lose two fine debat- 
ers in Morris and Starbird of the Class of 1921. The three remaining vet- 
erans, however, will form the backbone of a strong combination for next 
year which will be capable of upholding the fine traditions of the college 
in the field of debate. 


1921 Senior |;xtjihitum 

Nearly every part in the exhibition was suggestive of our modern 
Americanism and the effect it is having on the colleges of to-day. The 
prize was given to Edward A. Morris, whose subject was America and 
Internationalism. Norma Whiting, who spoke on Avocation, and Charles 
Starbird, whose part was China, The Awakening, received honorable men- 
tion. Others whose parts were selected for the exhibition were Ruth

1921 Junior Exhibition 

The parts selected for the exhibition showed an unusual brilliancy of 
thought in a variety of subjects. Ruth Colburn, whose topic was The Cru- 
cible, and Edward Morris, who spoke on The New Crusade, well deserved 
the two prizes. Others who spoke were Mildred Widber, Rambles in Eng- 
land; Winslow Anderson, The Seen and Unseen; Constance Walker, The 
Passing of the Old Home Paper; Stanley Spratt, The Time, The Place, The 
Man; Gladys Hall, Americanization in Industry; Millard Webster, The 
Problem of Education; Irma Haskell, Just a Talk on Thinking; George 
Hutchinson, Cooperation, the War's Great Lesson; Gabrielle Roy, New 
England — a Review; and Charles Starbird, The Menace of Unrest. 


1923 ^nptjomote Prize iebateH 

The debates for both the men and women were held on the same even- 
ing, as was the arrangement last year. The question, "Resolved: That the 
principles of the Smith-Towner Bill be enacted into legislation by Con- 
gress," was debated by the girls, the affirmative by E. Marjorie Pillsbury 
of Limington and Nelly K. Milliken of Augusta with Theodora R. Barent- 
zen of Augusta, as alternate ; and the negative by Mildred F. Baker of 
Randolph and Vivienne I. Rogers of Pittsfield with Alice M. Jesseman of 
Lisbon, N. H., as alternate. The decision was awarded the negative team 
and the individual prize to Mildred Baker. 

In the men's debate on the question, "Resolved: That England grant 
Ireland her independence," the affirmative was presented by Herbert A. 
Carroll of Cyrus, Mass., and Theodore R. Pinckney of Washington, D. C; 
the negative by Harold C. Burdon of Gilbertville, Mass., and Ernest W. 
Robinson of Concord, N. H. 

The winning team here was the affirmative, and Herbert Carroll 
received the prize as the best individual speaker. 

The judges were Charles W. Bickford of Lewiston, Superintendent 
of Schools, Mrs. S. F. Harms, and Earl S. Lewis, Secretary of the Auburn 
Chamber of Commerce.

Tune : ''Then You'll Remember Me." 

Unformed and vague within our hearts, 

A thought yet undefined — 

A potent love, a yearning strange, 

To thee our thought-hopes bind. 

The depth of that we owe to thee 

We cannot realize here, 

And yet we feel our kinship true, 

Our Alma Mater dear, 

To thee our kinship, Alma Mater dear. 


This symbol, love from all our future memory holds 
For thee our Alma Mater, Alma Mater dear. 

Dear Alma Mater, take this gift, 

Our Ivy, loyal, true, — 

Your faith we sons and daughters keep 

All life's adventures through. 

May thy ideals be ours by right, 

When we have earned renown ; 

Then shall we turn to thee, dear Bates, 

And lay the laurels down, 

For thee, dear Bates, we'll lay the laurels down. 

Marguerite Hill 


Juy lay floem 

I looked across the dull, low-rhythmed lakelet, 
To where the birches fringe the water's edge, 
And there beneath the glistening, misted tree-limbs, 
I saw the drooping figure of my friend. 

In fancy then I saw the love-moths gather, 
Who weave the loom of friendship for the earth ; 
And their playtime ravelling and twisting 
The golden gauze of love to test its worth ! 

They swarmed upon the air, the trees, the pebbles, 
Their filmy wings made heavy by the rain — 
Then hovering suddenly they clung upon him, 
Some swaying upward now and back again. 

And soon I felt a vague, uncertain longing; 
The heart of me was at the water's end. 
I went to ask forgiveness and a handclasp — 
To thank God for the realness of a friend. 

Irma Haskell.

To grow from year to year,

We can but carry on and on, 

Spirit of Bates sublime. 

To Alma Maters o'er the world, 
All students pledge their faith, 

In gratitude for service given, 
The gift of love 'til death. 

A symbol of our life to be, 
This ivy green shall grow, 

Forever carrying on for Bates, 
Our loyal hearts to show.

Under the guidance of Prof. Robinson, the Senior Class will this year 
present the Hippolytus of Euripides on the evening of Class Day, June 
21st. This is without doubt the most dramatic and best balanced of the 
Euripides dramas and well suited for a pageantry effect in an out-door 

Queen Phaedra's secret love for her husband's son, Hippolytus, is dis- 
covered by her nurse, who treacherously betrays her mistress's confidence. 
Phaedra, learning of this, upbraids her for her wickedness, and then in her 
desperation, kills herself in order to save her honor. King Theseus 
returns triumphant to greet his queen, and finds her dead. Enraged at 
his son, he exiles him, and Hippolytus, true to his oath not to tell the 
king, goes without a word. It is not until he is brought back dying of 
serious wounds, and until Artemis herself intervenes, proclaiming the 
innocence of Hippolytus, that the king at length asks his son's forgiveness. 

The cast follows :

Bates is indeed proud of her graduates and it is due to them that Bates 
was granted a charter of the Phi Beta Kappa fraternity in 1917. By this 
fact was recognized our right to stand with the foremost colleges of 
America. Bates is the third college in the state to win this honor, and as 
such is the Gamma Chapter of Maine. Membership in the fraternity is 
based on high scholarship and character, and the gold key, its symbol, is 
everywhere accepted as a proof of fine intellectual distinction. 

Many of the Bates faculty are enrolled in the list of membership. Some 
have gained that distinction in other colleges and some as the charter 
members here at Bates. Each spring not more than ten per cent are 
elected from the Senior class and at the same time are chosen a very few 
graduates of ten years before who have especially distinguished them- 
selves in scholastic work. 

Following are those chosen from the class of 1921: Winslow Anderson, 
Maynard Johnson, Robert Jordan, Charles Starbird, Loys Wiles, Donald 
Woodard, Mary Bartlett, Crete Carll, Theodora Dennison, Gladys Hall, 
Rachel Knapp, and Florence Lindquist.

With a record of thirty-nine victories in fifty contests, debating has 
assumed the role of the major sport at Bates. In recognition of this 
record the National Council of Delta Sigma Rho granted to Bates a charter 
for the first chapter in Maine. To date about fifty members have learned 
that "Oratory is the Key to Power." 

The annual initiation will take place this spring with three initiates: 
Edward A. Morris '21, Aurie I. Johnson '22, and William E. Young '24. 

Since its installation Delta Sigma Rho has played an important part in 
Bates activities. The Delta Sigma Rho interscholastic debating cup has 
drawn together a league of forty-five secondary schools in Maine and thus 
furnishes valuable publicity for the college. The honor of becoming a 
member of our chapter encourages many men to pass the grilling hours of 
preparing for intercollegiate contests. From every standpoint the Bates 
chapter of Delta Sigma Rho is a positive force in building a better, bigger 
and busier Bates.

Reason of 1920 

The Bates 1920 football team was undoubt- 
edly one of the lightest college teams in the East. 
Under the expert coaching of Tom Sullivan and 
his assistants, Coach Smith and Jim Carroll, it 
developed into a fighting aggregation which caused a great deal of trouble 
for its opponents. Opening the season in impressive fashion with a vic- 
tory over the Fort McKinley team, it was slow in rounding into shape; 
but starting with the Maine game it gained momentum and wound up the 
season with a hard-earned triumph over the heavy New York University 

The game on Sept. 25 presented the first opportunity to size up our 
football prospects. About forty men were tried out, of whom nine were 
"B" men from the 1919 season. The absence of ex-Captain Cutler, Sau- 
vage, Duffett and Tierney, however, made it evident that Coach Sullivan 
had a difficult job ahead of him. Cutler, the clean, hard-fighting captain 
of last year's eleven, reported for practice upon his arrival at college, but 
owing to internal injuries he was forced to quit the squad. A back-field 
combination consisting of Wiggin, Kelley, Finegan and Davis was early 
decided on with Moulton, Rounds and Farley making effective substitu- 
tions. A pick for the All-American team as an end himself, the coach 
spent much time in developing ends. Canter, a veteran of the previous 
season, performed in almost every game, while Gormley, Rounds and Canty 
saw plenty of service. To fill the positions of tackles and guards was a 
big problem, owing to the weight of the material reporting. Finally 
Scott and Guiney worked very effectively in tackle positions and Capt. 
Stonier and Newman, a freshman, proved themselves capable men against 
stiff opposition, holding down the guards' berths. Sullivan, Seifert and 
Mitchell did their share of the heavy work, also. The center position was 
held down by Luce '22 with Seager and Canty substituting. 

The team was equally well drilled on the offensive and defensive depart- 
ments. Captain Stonier was a tower of strength at guard and his sterling 
game against Hussey of Maine and Haines of Bowdoin caused him later 
to be picked as All-Maine guard. Wiggin, although having a bone broken 
in his hand during the N. H. State game, pluckily finished the season with 
his hand in splints. He piloted the team with fine judgment and clever, 
driving ability. To Kelley, captain-elect, and Davis '23 must be attributed 
a large part of the team's success against Bowdoin and N. Y. University. 
Kelley won fame as an open field runner and Davis proved to possess a 
powerful plunging ability. 

In the opening game with Fort McKinley, Bates allowed only one first 
down and won handily, 34-0. The work of Wiggin and Davis was con- 

In the second game against N. H. State "Dutch" Connors, their half- 
back, performed in mid-season style and carried the ball across the Bates 
line twice for the only touchdowns of the game. The N. H. State eleven 


had fourteen veterans who heavily outweighed the Garnet. Wiggin was 
forced to retire on account of a broken hand. It was only after a most 
strenuous contest, however, that Bates was blanked, 14-0. 

On Oct. 9, Bates met defeat at the hands of Mass. Aggies at Amherst, 
by the score of 21-7. The Bay State aggregation uncorked a great kicking 
game which proved disastrous for Bates.. Finegan, '24, electrified the 
crowd when he ran back the kick-off for 90 yards and a touchdown. For 
Mass. Aggies Capt. Poole, Grayson and Collins played a superb game. 
For Bates, Scott at left tackle put up a fine brand of football, while 
Moulton, Finegan, and Davis were the backfield stars. 

The State Series 

Colby came to Lewiston the following Saturday to open the Maine State 
Championship Series with Bates. As Colby had played in no regular con- 
tests up to that time, Bates was picked by the sporting writers as the 
favorite. It was a clean, hard-fought game and resulted in a hard-earned 
victory for Colby, 13-0. Both of the touchdowns came as a result of a 
blocked punt and a fumble. The first score counted when Lowery of Colby 
broke through the Bates line and blocked a punt. The ball rolled under 
the Bates goalposts and Pulsifer of Colby fell on it for the touchdown. 
The second touchdown resulted from a fumble of a bad pass, the ball rolling 
under the posts and a Colby player landed on it for a touchdown. 
Throughout the first half the Colby team showed the greater strength and 
it was only the wonderful work of the Bates line which prevented them 
from scoring more than once. When Wiggin was sent into the fray in the 
last half with a bandaged hand Bates came back and gave a wonderful 
exhibition of football. 

If Colby had been allowed to retain her backfield combination through- 
out the state series it is obvious that she would have been a serious con- 
tender for the championship. As it was, however, one of her star backs 
could not meet the eligibility rules and only Bates suffered a defeat at 
her hands in this state. 

Bates Championship Hopes Crimped in the Maine Game 

It was a rousing and long-to-be-remembered send-off which all of Bates 
gave to the team when it left for Orono the following Friday afternoon. 
That the wonderful spirit and confidence of the Bates supporters in their 
team was not misplaced, was demonstrated early in the first quarter of the 
torrid contest which took place that Saturday afternoon. In the first half 
every man on the Bates team played A-l football. Maine was completely 
outclassed in every department of the game. The line plunging of Davis 
and Moulton netted yard after yard, while Wiggin thrilled the stands time 
and again by fast spectacular runs. Capt. Stonier had a field day with 
Hussey of Maine. The first half ended with the score Bates, 8 ; Maine, 7. 
In the second half a successful forward pass was fatal for Bates, despite 
the fact that the line from end to end and four backfield men consistently 
outplayed the Blue and White. It was one of the most sensational and 
spectacular games of the year. The score card reads : Maine, 14 ; Bates, 8. 


Bates Divides Honors with Bowdoin in a Scoreless Tie 

On Oct. 30 Bates staged its last state series game with Bowdoin, and 
before an overflowing crowd of 2500 the two old rivals fought to a 0-0 tie 
in the most spectacular and thrilling battle ever seen on Garcelon Field. 
The Bowdoin aggregation, very confident after its win over Colby, was 
superior to Bates in the rushing game because if its heavier line and back 
field. That the Garnet, however, was their equal in every other department 
was early demonstrated. Bowdoin made frequent substitutions on account 
of injuries, a fact which shows the fierceness of the milling and the hard 
tackling of the Bates team. Capt. Stonier gave a peerless exhibition of 
football at left guard. Time and again Davis at fullback and the sensa- 
tion of the game, would crash through the Bowdoin line both on offense 
and defense. Wiggin piloted the team with rare ability. The game was 
hotly contested through the entire first half. Bates made threatening 
gains toward the Bowdoin goal posts but the Black and White defense 
would tighten and there was no scoring. In the second half Bowdoin 
strengthened and their attack was imminent several times. At the con- 
clusion of the deadlock it was evident that the teams were very evenly 
matched. The whole Garnet outfit played extraordinary football and 
presented a clean, hard-fighting machine on both offense and defense. 

Bates Springs Surprise in New York 

In the last game of the season Bates defeated New York University, 
21-18. The New Yorkers' failure to kick goals after touchdowns settled 
their fate. Both teams resorted to the forward passing game and in many 
cases, successfully. The open field running of Kelley frequently thrilled 
the stands. The alertness of Wiggin, however, in the last few minutes 
of play, when he feigned sending Kelley through center with the ball and 
circled the end himself for the last touchdown spelled defeat for New York 
and a glorious victory for Bates. 

Two wins, four losses, and a tie tells the history of our 1920 football 
season. -

Hasphali Reason of 1920 


When Bates pried the lid off the 1920 base- 
ball season in a game April 16 with Fort Will- 
iams there were four letter men upon whom our 
hopes of a winning ball club rested. They were 
Capt. Wiggin, Cusick, Dillon, and Van Vloten. 
Burns, '20, was unable to report for early prac- 
tice. These men later formed the nucleus of 
one of the strongest teams ever representing 
Bates College. It will be difficult to forget the 
remarkable pitching of "Bill" Johnston, a Fresh- 
man, as well as the superb fielding and hitting 
of his classmates Sauvage and Donahue. The 
excellent work of the two other new men, Lang- 
ley and Ebner, will always be associated with 
tthat championship outfit. To the veterans, 
Capt. Wiggin, Burns, Van Vloten, Dillon, and 
Cusick, must also be attributed a large share of 
the victories. 

The team made a good record, losing only 
five games out of fourteen played. And in the 
Maine State Championship they dropped only 
one to Maine. Their record alone is sufficient 
to prove the calibre of the ball club. Praise to the second string 
men who worked out faithfully and conscientiously should not be 
neglected, while to the man who developed and coached such a team 
must be given due credit. Coach Smith, laboring under the handicap of 
being physical director and coach of baseball at the same time, met all 
obstacles and overcame them. He apparently groomed the team with one 
object in view and that was the Maine State Championship. He achieved 
his object and then some. Satisfaction on the part of the entire student 
body and the loyal rooters of Lewiston and Auburn and "success" by the 
team were the two qualities that stand out pre-eminent in our 1920 baseball 

In the opening game of the year against Fort Williams Coach Smith 
tried out sixteen players. "Jim" Young and Van Vloten contributed two 
hits apiece. Bates won handily, 5-4. 

On April 19th Bowdoin defeated Bates in a loosely played game, 12-2. 
"Dan" Mahoney used four pitchers in turn. "Bill" Johnston proved very 
effective, Wiggin contributed a three-bagger and two singles. 

On the Massachusetts trip Bates pinned a 14-3 defeat on Lowell Tex- 
tile, registering 16 hits to Text's 5. Rain prevented games with Boston 
University and New Hampshire State. 

Cusick held Maine to two hits in the first game of the Maine State 
Championship Series while his teammates rolled up a 2-0 lead. Donahue, 
'23, hit the ball like a fiend, getting three hits for six bases in four times 
at bat. Burns and Sauvage put up a clever fielding game. 

In the next game against Boston University Bates was the victor, 5-3. 
Sauvage tripled with the bases choked in the fourth stanza, tying the 
score, while Dillon's triple and Van Vloten's double produced the winning 
run in the fifth, 


On May 7th Coach Smith sent his second string pitchers against St. 
Anselm's College of New Hampshire. St. Anselm's won, 8-2. 

Superb pitching by Bill Johnston was the feature of the game at Wa- 
terville the following Saturday. Colby was shut out, 4-0. Capt. Buck- 
nam of Colby, also, twirled an effective game. Sauvage, Donahue, and 
Dillon exhibited a sterling brand of ball in the infield. 

The following two games against Fort Williams at Portland and 
Maine at Orono produced a win and a loss. Fort Williams was de- 
feated, 12-1, while Maine turned the tables and won, 5-3. 

On the Southern trip the Garnet dropped two loosely played games 
to Brown and Boston College. 

In the return game against Colby on Garcelon field, Bates won in a 
close contest, 5-3. Donahue's hitting was the feature. 

In the annual Memorial Day contest Bates practically clinched its 
right to the State Championship title. Bowdoin was defeated, 3-2. Again 
much credit is due to Johnston who entered the box after pitching a hard 
game against Colby only two days before. Flinn pitched good ball for the 
losers. Dillon had four assists and four putouts. Sauvage at the hot cor- 
ner turned in some spectacular fielding. Capt. Wiggin and Dillon both 
got two hits. 

At Brunswick on the morning of June 4th before a record-breaking 
crowd and amidst the battle of music, Capt. Wiggin led his charges to an- 
other sensational win over our old rivals, Bowdoin, to the tune of 9-5. No 
one who witnessed that game will ever forget it. Spectacular catches 
by Wiggin, the work of Van Vloten behind the bat and "Norm" Sauvage 
at third will linger longer in our memories than any World Series game. 
It was a wonderful ending of a most successful season. 

Reason af 1921 

Under most favorable weather conditions forty men reported to Coach 
Smith for baseball practice early in April. There were five letter men 
available, Capt. Wiggin, Ebner, Langley and Cusick of last year's cham- 
pions and Kennelly, who was not in college last year. From the outset it 
was evident that the coach had a big job on his hands, both in developing 
a reliable infield combination as well as a consistent battery department. 
Kennelly, Cogan, Finnegan, Foynes, Jordan, and Moulton are at the time 
of writing fighting hard for infield berths. In the battery department 
Cusick, Jack Spratt and Spiller are the promising candidates for twirling 
honors, while Partridge and Coronios will wear the mask. If hard work, 
baseball and nothing but baseball will make a winning team, then it is a 
sure bet that Capt. Wiggin and Coach Smith will have one before the 
season is over. 

In the games up to date the team has been losing. Jack Spratt, the 
basketball captain, is pulling the all-around athlete stunt, for he is now 
called upon to assume the bulk of the pitching duties. The infield is not a 
smooth working and reliable combination, although at times they display 
a brand of ball which means a pennant winner. 

Wiggin, Langley and Ebner are the same safe guardians of the field 
as last year. Partridge is showing up well behind the bat. With the 


season still young it is difficult to prophesy as to championship qualities of 
our 1921 ball club. Win or lose, however, Bates and its followers are 
well assured that under the direction of Coach Smith and Capt. Wiggin 
there will always be a clean, hard-fought contest. 

In the opening game with Harvard, Bates held the Crimson nine even 
for five stanzas. In the last half of the sixth and during a shower, four 
runners crossed the plate, making the score Harvard 6, Bates 2. The 
game was called at the end of that inning. The feature of this contest was 
the home-run of Capt. Wiggin, Cusick twirling effectively. 

In the next game, the annual exhibition game with Bowdoin on April 
19, Jack Spratt pulled the unexpected and pitched a masterly game on the 
long end of a 4-2 score. "Kippy" Jordan and Partridge batted hard for 
Bates while Needleman and Clifford got two hits apiece for Bowdoin. The 
fielding of Cogan at second base and Capt. Wiggin in the center garden 
was flawless.

1921 Relay Champions 











The first call for the Bates hill-and-dalers was issued soon after college 
opened. There were two letter men, the Buker twins, while Batten, Clif- 
ford, Peterson, and C. T. Perkins had performed the previous season. Of 
the new men Kimball '22 proved a Tartar as well as Kane '24. This squad 
was moulded into the Maine State Champions and runners-up for the 
New England cross-country honors. R. B. Buker '22 was the individual 
star of this strong combination. He upset all dope at the N. E. Intercol- 
legiates, when he passed MacMahon of Tech for a fast win. The work 
of his twin brother, Richard S., also was of championship calibre, while 
Kane, Kimball, and Batten showed their heels to the majority of the field 
in both races. It was an extraordinarily strong team, whose record we 
can well be proud of. Its success was due to faithful training under the 
direction of Coach Johnstone. 

The season opened Nov. 15 at Brunswick, and for the first time in the 
history of cross-country running in the state of Maine, the U. of M. team 
was forced to second by Bates, who turned in the low score of 21 points. 
Maine rolled up 65 points for second place, while Bowdoin and Colby fin- 
ished with 67 and 75, respectively, to their credit. The feature of the race 
was the fifty-fifty finish of the Buker twins, who were 25 seconds ahead 
of the rest of the field. Kane, a Freshman, pressed Hart of Bowdoin 
closely for third position and Kimball sprang a delightful surprise when he 
crossed the line in sixth position. Batten '23 gave the renowned Goodwin 
the race of his life for seventh place and Clifford '23 was close on his heels. 

In the N. E. Intercollegiates the following Saturday the Bates runners 
again performed in big league fashion. The Garnet was defeated only by 
Mass. Tech. The work of Raymond Buker, who defeated 80 men, is worthy 
of highest commendation. Richard Buker, finishing strong in seventh 
place, was the next Bates man, while Kane in thirteenth position, Kimball 
in twentieth and Batten in fortieth place completed the scoring for Bates 
with a total of 81 points, second only to Tech. with 59. 

Freshmen Relay 


After completing a track season which 
produced the international champion two- 
miler, champions in the 100-yd. dash, the 
880, the two-mile and discus throw in the 
Maine Intercollegiates, seven first place 
winners in a dual meet with New Hamp- 
shire State, and an impressive victory 
over the Tufts relay team in the B. A. A. 
Indoor Meet, it is plain that by no other 
word can the season be described than "a 
success." Of course, a fair consideration 
of the team clearly shows that it was weak 
in jumps and weights and the failure to 
place men in these events cost the team 
two victories. Mention should be made, 
also, of the loss of Farley in the last two 
meets. He pulled a tendon in the New 
Hampshire meet which put him out for 
the rest of the season. Much praise should 
be attributed to Coach Johnston, who has 
worked untiringly with the thirty men 
reporting daily for practice. Despite the 
graduation of Captain Buker and Wiggin, 
'21, men whom it will be difficult to replace 
by superiors in their events, it is safe to 
predict a glorious track season for next 
year. Hodgman and Varney, quarter- 
milers who have developed rapidly in the 
last year, and Webster, Newell, Small and 
Gross in the jumps will also be missed. 

Sttftoat tytatk 


Regular practice for indoor track 
started shortly after the cross-country sea- 
son was over. With only the B. A. A. 
Meet and the Interclass contests as oppor- 
tunities for competition it was surprising 
to note the large number of men who 
trained faithfully during the hard winter 
months. Finally, Wiggin and Farley 
were chosen to enter the fifty-yard dash 
in the B. A. A. Games, while Hodgman, 
Batten '23, R. B. and R. S. Buker were the 
fastest men for the triangular relay with Maine and Tufts. Maine, with 
an exceptionally fleet quartet, won the race, and Bates easily led Tufts. 

The 28th Annual Indoor Meet at City Hall was held March 9. It at- 
tracted the usual crowd and owing to the closeness of the score, it proved 
very interesting. The class of 1923, decided dark horses before the meet, 
rolled up 37 points, 1921 was second with 34%, 1922 had 32 points, and 
1924, 2&y*2. Farley, '24, took three first places. Irving, Davis, and Batten 


International Two-mile 


were the trio that won for 1923. It was only a side show, but worth double 
the price to see our freshman relay team outdistance the Bowdoin fresh- 
men by half a lap. 

QJlje Itetm 8Ulag GJartuual 

Bates sent three men, R. B. Buker, Farley '24, and Luce '22, to compete 
with the country's best at the Penn Relay Carnival. Everyone knows the 
story of Buker's victory in the international two-mile, after a sensational 
sprinting finish. He was clocked in the fast time of 9.25 3-5s. Furnas 
of Purdue University and Nightingale of West Virginia were the calibre 
of men who were forced to read his number on the heart-breaking home 
stretch. This accomplishment, by far, exceeds any other effort of a Bates 
man in track athletics. It brings a national reputation to Buker and a 
signal honor to our Alma Mater. 

Farley entered the 100-yd. dash and, likewise, competed with the fleet- 
est century men in America. In his heat of seven contestants, Farley was 
a close second at the tape to Gourdin, famous Harvard sprinter. Luce, '22, 
hurled the discus 116 ft. 4 in., and against such stiff competition made a 
very commendable showing. 

5ft* ®ual ifcet Mltttj Jfcui fampaljto 

New Hampshire State won the dual meet with Bates on May 7 by a 
score of 71-55. The weakness of Bates in the weight events was the chief 
cause of defeat. 

The feature of the meet was the easy manner in which Wiggin captured 
first places in both the 100-yd. and 220-yd. This was a remarkable feat, 
considering that Wiggin returned from the Massachusetts baseball trip, 
without training in track, to compete in these events. Farley, '24, an ex- 
cellent dash man, pulled a tendon in the first heat of the 100-yd. dash. 
Burrill and Wilson took first places in the broad jump and pole vault, 
respectively. In the distance runs, the Buker twins and Kane, '24, showed 
their heels to the field. Rose, '23, and Jenkins, '22, did well in the hurdles.

5[tje Maine Sntettolbgiatea 

On the following Saturday all of Bates went down to Bowdoin to cheer 
the track team in the Maine Intercollegiates. Despite the rain, which 
poured heavily all day and left the track mostly a pool of water and mud, 
the meet was close and interesting. Bowdoin won with a total of 44 1-3 
points ; Maine, 28 1-3 ; Colby, 26 1-3 ; Bates, 26. 

Bowdoin's strength lay in the dashes, a slight margin in the jumps, 
and broke even in the weights. Maine was strong in the weights and even 
with Bowdoin in the jumps. Colby gathered her points in the hurdles 
and kept even in runs and weights. Bates was superior in distance races, 
good in dashes and weights, and outclassed in the hurdles and jumps. 

In the century and furlong, our old standby, Wiggin, plodded through 
water ankle deep to a spectacular win in the hundred, and took second in 
the two-twenty. The most thrilling and heart-breaking race of the after- 
noon was furnished by Charlie Kane in the half-mile. Stepping right out 
in front for the first quarter, he never slackened a bit until he broke the 
worsted by a comfortable margin over Goodwin of Bowdoin, who was dis- 
playing a remarkable spurt. And from some place in the rear, Batten, '23, 
came down the home stretch with an extraordinary burst of speed and just 
missed nipping Herrick of Maine at the finish for third place by inches. 

Mercer of Colby and Richard Buker also provided an afternoon's enter- 
tainment in the mile run. The going was too muddy for the famous Buker 
sprint, however, and our captain was forced to be content with second 
position. The two-mile was all summer to Raymond Buker, who stepped 
out front during the first quarter and led the field as he willed for the 
remainder of the race. Kimball, '22, put up a wonderful fight in this race 
for third place. In the discus-throw, Luce, '22, won handily.

Bates has a strong tennis team this year 
which has already given a good account of 
itself. The squad consists of Edward Roberts, 
'23, and Oscar LeSieur, '22, both letter men, as 
first doubles team, and Carl Purinton, '23, and 
Donald Woodard, '21, as second doubles team. 
On May 11, Bowdoin won the dual meet, four 
matches to two. At that time it was evident 
that the brand of tennis which would be seen 
at the State meet would be above par. We were 
fortunate to have the State meet held on our 
own courts this spring and although we did not 
take the championship Bates placed both 
doubles teams and one singles player, Roberts, 
in the semi-finals. 

The tennis schedule this spring has been 
greatly enlarged over previous years. Meets 
with Colby and Boston University appear on 
the list and it is hoped that Bates will be rep- 
resented at Longwood this spring. 

Among other men who have made a bid for 
the team are Elwood Ireland, '22, a letter man, 
and "Dick" Stanley, '24, who won the Fresh- 
man Tennis Tournament Cup last fall.

Making its second appearance as a varsity hockey seven, the 1921 team 
went through a successful season, despite the fact that it only won four 
of the eight games played. The weather was peculiarly favorable for 
hockey, especially from the spectator's standpoint. The team had many 
loyal rooters among the people of Lewiston as well as a strong backing 
from the student body. 

Hockey practice started the first week in December with Coach-Captain 
Cutler in charge of the work-outs. Capt. Cutler, Wiggin, and Roberts 
were the only letter men available. Roberts, Cogan, Stanley, and Smith 
were early decided upon for the forward positions, while Capt. Cutler, 
Rounds, Belmore, Scott, and Delaney were the outer defense men to remain 
on the squad. Wiggin was the goal tender in every game, and after Cut- 
ler's graduation in February led the team for the remainder of the season. 

The first game was with the veteran Boston College outfit, immediately 
after the Christmas recess. Both sevens were ragged in team work and 
Bates, especially, was in poor physical condition. After registering a lone 
unearned tally in the first half, the septet from Boston came back strong 
in the second half and rolled up a 5-0 score. 

The next game with the fast Nibrocs of Berlin, N. H., was the most 
sensational game of the season. From start to finish the game was a 
series of thrills, and it required two over-time periods of ten minutes each 
before Capt. Cutler, who displayed a sterling brand of hockey all season, 
finally wended his way down the ice and lifted the puck by the vigilant 
Berlin goal-tender. The work of Wiggin and Cutler was the feature of 
the game. 

The following Saturday, Coach Smith sent his charges against Bowdoin. 
One sporting editor said in regard to the game that the superior team and 
individual work of the fast Bates septet dazzled Bowdoin so that she lost 
sight of the puck. Bowdoin was literally snowed under, although the score 
of 4-0 only half tells the tale. Only the excellent work of Miguel in goal 
kept the score down to reasonable bounds. 

In the next game against the St. Dominiques of Lewiston, "Eddie" Rob- 
erts, left wing, enjoyed a field day. He registered five out of ten tallies. 


In one of the roughest games of the year, Bates suffered a 10-3 defeat 
at the hands of the speedy Portland Country Club, the following Saturday. 
On Feb. 14 the Berlin, N. H., team in winding up a hockey trip through 
Canada, took the measure of Bates in another over-time game, 2-1. 

Minus the services of Capt. Cutler in a return game on Washington's 
Birthday, Bates again defeated her rival, Bowdoin, 2-0. Cogan '24 in 
center position gave an excellent exhibition of fast skating and clever stick 

In their final appearance the Garnet septet stacked up against the fast 
Springfield Y. M. C. A. aggregation in the annual carnival game. This 
game was perhaps the most sensational and closest of any game on the 
home rink, and it was only after the most gruelling contest that Bates was 
defeated, 2-1. Cogan was again the individual star, his repeated dashes 
down the rink and clever stick work being the feature of the game.

Lack of favorable weather and rink conditions prevented the final 
match to settle the controversy about interclass hockey. The preliminary 
matches resulted as follows : 

1921 three defeats, dropping one game to each of the three other classes. 

1922 victory from 1921, defeat from 1923, and defeat from 1924. 

1923 victory from 1921, and victory from 1922. 

1924 victory from 1921, and victory from 1922. 

Thus the Sophomores and the Freshmen were brought together for the 
final match to decide the championship. It would have doubtless been 
an interesting game to watch, but "Old Man Jupiter," ably seconded by 
"Old Sol," decided that the contest should not take place, and it was neces- 
sary to give up the program. The deadlock was not settled, and the Soph- 
omores and Freshmen share the honors. Material for future varsity 
squads was discovered, and we may expect to hear from some of the

On December 18, 1920, Bates was represented in basketball for the 
first time. From that date to the end of the season the Garnet had a team 
which she may well remember with pride. Many difficulties presented 
themselves to Coach Smith in the early stages, for the sport was under- 
going a change from pugilistic and "catch-as-catch-can" encounters to a 
scientific, clean form of athletics. By rigid insistence that every man 
observe the rules of the game, the Coach was able to develop a team that 
was outclassed by New Hampshire State alone ; and the latter is acknowl- 
edged as the champion of New England. To be sure, there were other 
defeats, but the Garnet quintet were always in the same class as the 
opposing forces. 

The success of a team lies in the man chosen to lead it, and especially 
so if there have been no previous contests from which to judge the caliber 
of the candidates. "Jack" Spratt was incontestably that man, and no 
captain has ever faced a more dubious future, with practically an inexperi- 
enced team, than he did when the season was young. With the conviction 
that his men were truly capable of playing the game in an irreproachable 
manner, "Jack" inspired them with his confidence and received their 
whole cooperation. The scores attest the result. The Captain's own 
ability was excelled by no man whom he faced in center position. His 
record at foul shooting is remarkable, and he also caged the basket from 
the floor more times than any of his teammates. Little wonder that "Jack" 
was the idol of the Garnet basketball squad. 

Davis and Burrill of '23 were the only other upperclassmen besides 
Captain Spratt to win a place on the varsity aggregation. The first of 
these proved always a dependable mainstay when the breaks were against 
the Garnet. "Davie" was never rattled, and his quiet, determined atti- 
tude often had a steadying influence at critical moments. Burrill, by hard, 
conscientious work, was promoted to the first team about the middle of the 
season. His exhibition at the Boston games was noteworthy. 

The remainder of the team were Freshmen. Of these the pair from 
Haverhill, Mass., Kempton and Coronios, were a duet that sang the swan 
song for opponents who were too far gone to warble for themselves. 
"Kempie," the baby of the squad, won the praise and admiration of every 
Bates man and woman for his grit and skill against players who out- 
weighed him from twenty to one hundred pounds. Always alert, never dis- 
couraged, this diminutive flash of lightning, endowed with an eagle eye 
for shooting baskets, was a thorn in the flesh for the opposition. Next to 
"Jack," "Kempie" dropped the ball through the loop for the greatest num- 
ber of points. "Jimmie," the other member of the couple, starred in finer 
points of the game. With bad habits to overcome from former coaching, 
this lad from the Bay State proved a valuable asset to the squad, especially 
in the art of clever passing. 


Johnson, another of Massachusetts' sons, while not a wizard at shooting, 
played an excellent guarding game. Ever willing to give a little more 
than expected, Walter worked hard to win when he participated in the 

The rest of the squad hail from the Empire State. Wilson, Gormley, 
and Reinhardsen, all started the season with a knowledge of the present 
day game as each had trained under Coach Smith in prep, school days. 
"Mike" Wilson was one of the best forwards of the season, and Gormley 
was at center when "Jack" was out of the game. Both men exhibited 
basketball of the highest quality. 

The prospects of an excellent team next year are very promising. 
Captain Spratt is the only man to graduate, and with the return of the 
rest of the team and what new material may enter next fall, a champion- 
ship aggregation may be expected.

Athletic Aaannattnn 

President, Minerva Cutler, '21 

Vice-President, Beatrice Clark, '22 

Secretary, Maud Small, '23 

The Athletic Board, formed by the officers and managers of the vari- 
ous sports, carries on the business of the Association. The work of the 
Board during the past year has been excellent. Great credit is due Min- 
erva Cutler, who, as President of the Athletic Association, has headed the 
Board with her usual straightforward judgment and efficiency. 

Miss Davies came to us at the beginning of the year as Miss Niles' 
assistant. She has been a great help for us in coaching our various teams 
and we feel that we owe much to her knowledge and cheerful manner of 
arousing pep and enthusiasm. 

This year the wearing of the garnet and black was limited to those 
who have made three first teams or more. The majority of girls may have 
to work four years to wear the college colors. In 1920 the girls were 
given the right to wear the "B" after being a member of ten first teams. 
This means that no girl can possibly earn her "B" in less than two years 
of hard and concentrated training. 

The season opened with the Hare and Hound Chase which was held on 
the river bank. The trails were difficult and the girls arrived with raven- 
ous appetites which were amply satisfied. After supper they gathered 
around the big bonfire and sang all the songs they knew and some that they 
didn't know! This annual chase .is a custom that we would not care to 
do away with as it affords us an opportunity to initiate the Freshmen girls 
and to arouse enthusiasm for the coming sports. 

Immediately after the Hare and Hound Chase, Hockey began. Volley- 
ball, Basketball, Track, Soccer, and Tennis followed through the year. 
The closing games of each season were displays of skill and spirit never 
before equalled. 

The annual Basketball Banquet closed the Basketball season. The 
decorations were in keeping with St. Patrick's Day and the menu was all 
that could be desired. The toasts were excellent and afterwards as the 
girls sat singing in the soft candlelight waiting for "Karl" to take their 
pictures, each thought in her heart how very worth while the strenuous 
season just passed had been. 

Thus have we, in happy sport and good comradeship, completed one 
of the most satisfactory years in the history of Bates girls. 


Hirst 3[eam (JfJjamptattB 1921 

Hockey, our first fall sport, was a struggle from start to finish. All 
classes showed the results of concentrated work and fine coaching and a 
number of tie games resulted. The Seniors won the championship after 
a hard-fought season. The skill displayed by the underclasses gives fine 
promise for the coming season.

Volley ball has always been considered a rather tame sport. However, 
it gives a much needed rest between the strenuous games of hockey and 
basketball. It also gives the iodine bottle a rest, since there is no danger 
whatever of getting hurt while playing volley ball. The practices are 
miniature vaudeville shows. After close and interesting games the cham- 
pionship went to the Juniors.

Basketball this year has been particularly successful. The vigor and 
enthusiasm with which the games were played off won applause from both 
sides of the campus. 1921 easily won the championship by a display of 
speed and teamwork which has never been equalled at Bates. The other 
teams showed the results of enthusiastic practice which prophesies well 
for the coming year.

Track deserves singular mention in that 1921 has held the championship 
for three years. At the present time there are five records held by Seniors. 
Much credit is due Norma Whiting, who has captained the 1921 team since 
Freshman year and who, herself, holds four records.

Tennis holds the interest of everyone from those who can just hold a 
racquet to those who play off challenges and win championships. The 
side lines are always filled with cheering sections and interested spectators. 
Last year 1921 won both singles and doubles, thus making Rachel Knapp 
winner of the singles cup for three consecutive years and the doubles team 
champions for two years.

Last year was the first year that soccer has been played at Bates. In 
spite of this fact, however, quite a degree of skill has been achieved. The 
Seniors won the championship here also. With an increase of spirit and 
skill soccer may be made one of the most keenly contested of all the sports.

In 1913 a cup was presented to the Women's Athletic Association by 
Miss Edna B. Manship, at that time physical director here. It was to be 
competed for annually and to become the property of the class holding it 
two years. Thus the cup has gone to the class winning the greatest num- 
ber of championships in a year. The cup has been held for one year by 
the classes of 1913, 1916, 1917, 1918, 1919 and 1920. The class of 1921 won 
their Junior year and again in their Senior year, placing the cup in their 
possession permanently.

ButttB About (SntBtlmB— (§ut dfanii Points an& ©ttjers 

Tallest — The girls can see no one else when Jack Spratt is around — 
he gets unanimous attention for "lofty ambitions and slim means." 
Between Norma Whiting and Marguerite Findlen, however, the entire class 
could hardly decide, but in the end, Norma comes out a good first. 

Shortest — Connie Walker gets everybody's vote. Girls were quite at 
sea about the height of the boys and threw a line for McKinney, with Case 
and Rand as far seconds. 

Biggest Crab — Well, can't any of us say much, but we seemed to derive 
great pleasure in using one ballot. Bridges — for someone else. There 
was no question at all about Bridges — he pulls a royal flush. Paul and 
Hamlin get half-hearted support. Among the girls it was hotly contested, 
with Hodgdon and Coburn running neck to neck and Merrill, Fairweather 
and Barnie outdistanced almost at the first. The home stretch revealed 
Coburn in the lead by a length. 

Man Hater — When it comes to the philosophical pastime of hating man, 
Kate Jones makes away with the heavy laurels, with Carrie Doe as a limp- 
ing second. Too bad, Carrie, where d'you get that limp? 

Biggest Head — And we have to hand the ruby cuff-links to Hamlin and 
Glad Hall for having good sized heads. By the way, Phil, you got a few 
votes right here yourself. 

Mischief Maker — There is within the confines of our clever class a 
quiet, peaceful person with a truly angelic temperament. 0. Smith is 
our mischief maker — though you'd never guess it from his conversational 
line. "Angel" is his nickname among the ladies — "Kelly" with the mighty 
sex. In the opinion of the co-eds there is no strenuously mischievous 
damsel in '21 — but Carrie J. has tendencies in that direction, or as Mac 
might say, "an inborn capacity," and Emma comes across with a wicked 

Noisiest — We are admittedly a gentle, unassuming class, seldom rais- 
ing roughhouses and never making uncalled-for noises, but we've got to 
hand it to Caroline for answering the call ! You're there, Caroline, you're 
there ! 

Quietest— As sl necessary balance we have Clarence Field. He and 
Carrie offset each other beautifully. We don't believe that he has said 
more than three unnecessary words since he came to Bates. And there is 
no one like him in Rand Hall ; Dite is quiet, but oh, my ! 

General Nuisances — See those four happy-go-lucky humans, hopping 
along hand-in-hand? They are Marceline, Allanby, Emma and Pasquale. 
Do you wonder why we class them as we do? Well, it is customary to 
have a nuisance or two, so we tried to scare some up — Marceline because 
of her high-powered laugh, Al because of his vicious tennis cut, Emma 
because of her kith and kins, and Pasquale — well, just to make a smooth- 
running four. 

Brilliant — Our shining wonders are Glad Hall and Jack Spratt. Their 
wits are always on edge, their flashing repartee is actually worthy of repro- 
duction — but we can't think of anything on the spur of the moment, so 
we'll leave it at that. 


Best Orator — Glad Hall and Starbird pile up the score for orating, with 
Irma rolling a miserable 70 in useless pursuit. 

Greatest Grind — It is notable that the candidates were few. May- 
nard Johnson, it turns out, works hardest, outnumbering entirely Andy's 
loyal supporters. Theda Bara Dennison represents the girls beyond com- 
parison, though Eunice Hawkins and Connie Walker get honorable 

Most Popular — The whole class loves to see long Jack Spratt coming, 
though the girls just couldn't get Kelly Smith's sunny smile and Belmore's 
classic nose out of mind. Kate Jones will be longest remembered and 
Min Cutler almost as long. Irma was not far in the distance. 

Best Dresser — Well, the girls ought to know, but they couldn't decide 
for the life of them between Bob Jordan and Arthur Bates. Woodard and 
McKinney also reflect the fashion sheet. Among the girls this was a 
critical question. They finally decided on Findlin. Ernestine Philbrook 
and Eddie Merrill know how to get themselves up. Ruth Bowie's crea- 
tions were not forgotten, either. 

Best Disposition — Well, you wouldn't think many would get in there — 
especially if we have a room-mate, let alone two — but Kelly Smith seems to 
have stood the test. Some thought Hutchinson ought to get it. The girls 
know Sammy Brewster is a regular peach, in the morning as well as later 
on, and Rae Knapp, Mary Bartlett and Mil Edwards are mighty good kids 
to get along with. 

Best Looking — This was a question — we never noticed our features 
before. The girls prefer Al Dean, though Bob Jordan and Cusick and 
Langley and Bond aren't bad at all. The Parker Hall bunch hold out for 
Ernestine Philbrook and Hughes, but the girls tip the balance for Barb 
Gould — bet the bob did that, Barb. 

Most Efficient — Bill Hodgman's stern conducting of business affairs 
has put him across with the girls all right. We saw the votes. Fe Cutler 
is mighty nifty at managing, too, and Woodard and Jordan surely know 
how to run things. Izzie and Phil stand out among the girls in the business 

Biggest Eater — This is very interesting. The girls unanimously say 
Hutchinson, though Cusick gets one vote from them — wonder if that was 
Eddie's. Then Eunice Hawkins enjoys respite from study, and Fair- 
weather and Connolly are disgusted to see that they have a good supply 
of votes. Cora Cox is not forgotten. 

Best Sport — Kate and Jack are the jolly good sports, the reg'lar people 
of '21. Here's how, old dears, may you ever live up to your rep. 

Best Dancers — Among the men, Harry Hall is said to shake a mean 
hoof — and as for the ladies, we salaam to our modern Terpsichore, 
Carrie J. 

Class Babies — Ever hear Marion remark that she was the youngest one 
there. It was probably true enough, she is a young thing. We present the 
pretty pink rattle to Marion and Hamlin, the embryonic wonders of our 


Greatest Optimist — When it comes to throwing the sunny smile and 
cheerful grin Ruth Stilesie and Kelly Smith are there with the berries — 
Ruth gets an almost unanimous vote — though Sammie comes in with a 
cheerful few. 

Sleepyheads — Cusick is our standard sleepyhead — no one else can hold a 
candle to him. Ruth Fisher used to be a rather strenuous worshiper of 
Morpheus but she's had an awakening. 

Those Who Work Least — Yea, Emma ! Yea, Connolly ! Yea, Yea, Emma 
Connolly ! This maddening cheer nearly drowns out the feeble attempt to 
give the honors to Carrie J. They say that Jim Stonier and Cusick never 
did a day's work, either. 

Time Killer — This time we sing "All Hail, Emma" more loudly than 
before and again we hear Carrie J. in the dim distance. The boys give two 
rousing cheers for Jack Spratt. 

Who Kids the Profs? — We see a demure little maid walk innocently up 
to Monie to explain that she must leave English at 2 — Irma has an impor- 
tant engagement with Music Hall. Close on her footsteps comes Mar- 
guerite, who has to see Irma arrive at the show safely. Then there is 
Dusty — what he has not told Prof. Britan first and last is not worth 

Rand Hall Pest — Here is another honor to add to your Phi Beta Kappa, 
Wiles. John Cusick comes in a close second, not on the Phi Beta Kappa, 

The Laziest — Emma and John Cusick receive the unanimous vote of the 
entire class. The oftly thing Emma can do is go to the movies, and John 
clutters up Rand Hall steps. 

Biggest Mushers — Wiles wins here again. John is his close rival again. 
Ethel Fairweather was mentioned but we don't take this seriously. 

Greatest Musician — Crete Carll and Kenneth Steady finish strong, 
although closely followed by Carrie Jordan and Don Woodard. Someone 
says Bill Langley is a musician. 

Best Chaperoness — "Let's get Miss Niles" — this is what we all say. 
How many wonderful times we have to look back upon with "Nilesy" as 
our chaperone. Mrs. Shaffner is the favorite for the dances. "Wasn't 
Mrs. Shaffner a peach to let us stay so long?" 

Biggest Athlete — Of course this was mere form — Wlggin sweeps the 
board. The girls have made a splash in collecting inter-class honors — 
Miss Cutler is judged our best with Carrie Jordan, Jones and Carrie Doe 
as no mean talent. 

Biggest Vamps — Evidently we have them on both sides of the campus. 
Wiles gets in on his devilish eyes and Newall with his ogling ones. Jack 
gets a vote here, too, — ha, ha ! 

Bolsheviki — There are no Eolshevists among the men, but the girls are 
swift to hand the honors to Marg Hill and Glad Hall, Marguerite leading 
by many lengths. She is rather rough, eh, kids ? 

Biggest Jazz Hounds — Harry Hall and Carrie J. are the jazz fiends — a 
few miserable others follow in their wake, but the glory is not divided. 


Most Talented — Irma and Jack walk away with the prize. Just like 
that — without much struggle. They can do anything. V. is their middle 
initial — stands for versatility. 

Movie Fiend — Here's Emma again — yea boom ! And Mannie Smith. 
Both are romantic souls. 

The Wittiest — Irma and Jack again. Irma got her rep on bum puns 
and Jack on general cleverness. 

Who Goes Not to Chapel? — Proctors' records tell us that Irma and 
Dusty are the guilty ones. But we didn't have to ask the proctors; the 
thing is obvious. 

Greatest Philosophers — Widber, Hill and Blackington, with Irma run- 
ning weakly three lengths behind. Deep stuff, Irmie, kinder heavy for a 
little gal. Those three are wonders — Omar Khayyams 'n' everything. 

Thus endeth the revelation.

Sometime during the month of January, 1921, there took place a movie 
show in Chase Hall. The fact that there was such a show in Chase Hall 
is not a remarkable thing in itself, but at this particular performance Ken 
Steady made an announcement which caused every person in the audience 
to be on the qui vive. Let us listen to the announcement: "Ladies and 
gentlemen, a dictagraph has been placed in the faculty room of R. W. H., 
which has recorded the exact words of the various members of our 
faculty." A current of excitement, of curiosity, and of expectation per- 
meates the assembly. Were the patents, copyrights, and formulas of the 
Bates College Canning Factory at last to be made known to the public? 
But there is no chance for prolonged meditation on this subject, for Mr. 
Steady continues : "Doubtless you will be surprised to learn that this 
recorded conversation took place at about two o'clock in the morning." 
Could it be possible that the faculty were in session at that late hour? 
(The Prayer Meeting investigations had ceased long ago.) But listen! 
Ken has not finished his announcement. "I am sure that everyone will 
rejoice to hear that this record will be played immediately for the enlight- 
enment and amusement of the dear public." Now the audience braces 
itself for what is to follow. Imagine the amazement and consternation of 
everyone when the voices of President Gray, Professor Knapp, Professor 
Hertell, Dr. Purinton, Professor Baird, Professor Chase and Dr. Britan 
are heard speaking as they engage in a red-hot game of old-fashioned draw 

Perfectly scandalous ! Yes, indeed, if true. However, in order that 
the reputations of our most honored faculty may not be sullied, a few 
words of explanation will certainly be a la mode, and here is the real truth 
of the matter. Someone overheard "Dusty" Blackington mimicing several 
Professors as his imagination told him they would sound if engaged in 
playing poker. Presto!!! Why not make a record of it? The idea was 
carried into execution a V instant; sl dictaphone was procured and Charlie 
Stevens commissioned to operate it; then of course Dusty was Johnny-on- 
the-spot to assist in its manufacture by imitating the voices of Prexy, 
Freddie, Purry, Goosie and Doc Britan. Our friend, Cecil Holmes, suc- 
cessfully produced the voices of Frenchie and Birdie. At frequent inter- 
vals, a laughing chorus composed of the principal actors assisted by 
Messrs. Spratt, Steady, and Stevens furnished ample volume of laughter. 
The last step in the procedure before this record could be released to the 
public was its censorship by "Bursar" W. Rowe. 

The second performance of this production was before the Bates Round 
Table the same evening that Dr. Britan won national fame by his treatise 
on the mysteries of lovemaking. From then on it was played until com- 
pletely worn out. We still think and talk about this record, however, 
though its material substance perished long ago, and now that the record 
itself is gone, we are recording on these pages the scenario just as it was 
produced in January, 1921. If you want a vocalized edition, go to "Dusty" 
and he will be more than glad to render it for you. 

"Prexy" : "Er Professor Knapp, have you brought your paste- 
boards with you?" 


"Freddie" : "Oh, yes, I always carry them with me ; Donald gave me a 

new pack for Chwistmas." 

"Prexy" : "E all right ! Let's have a little game ! ! ! ! !" 

"Freddie": "Shall we cut for deal, Pwesident Gway?" 

"Goosie": " 'Frenchie,' give me a cigarette, will you?" 

"Frenchie" : "Yah, all 'ight, all I haf iss a couple of Zi-as." 

"Doc" B.: "W-e-1-1, h-e-h— it rather looks as though I had to deal; 

don't know what Mrs. Britan would say, he-e-h — ." 

"Purry" : "Ace was always high when I was at Colby." 

"Frenchie" : "Yah, yer not at Colby now." 

"Goosie": "Freddie, give me a match, will you?" 

"Doc" B.: "W-e-1-1 — h-e-h — who opens? It takes jacks or better." 

"Frenchie": "Yah, all 'ight, I'll open dis pot." 

"Prexy" : "Er— ante up ! ! ! Everybody ! ! !" 

"Doc" B.: "W-e-1-1 — h-e-h — how many cards? What d'you say, 


"Frenchie" : "I'll take a couple." 
"Purry" : "Give me two cards." 
"Birdie": "Dr. Purinton must be holding an ace. Therefore I shall 

take three cards, however, er — I think I shall need more than three cards, 

er — therefore I shall take four cards. Yes, sir! You may give me four 


"Doc" B.: "W-e-1-1, Goosie, what do you say?" 

"Goosie" : "Shades of Orestes ! ! ! I shall be compelled to pass." 


"Prexy" : "Well — er — if I may be permitted to use the expression, I — 
er — will stand pat." 

"Doc" B.: "H-e-h— who's betting?" 

"Frenchie" : "All 'ight, a game of cards iss al'ays a 'ittle more inter- 
esting with a little money on de table. I'll bet a couple of dollars. What 
do you say, Dr. Purinton?" 

"Purry" : "I will raise you three." 

"Birdie" : "I — er — believe I can raise you four — er — yes, sir ! I will 
raise you four." 

"Purry" : "Well, I'll stay with you." 

"Freddie" : "Oh, -yes, I'll stay." 

"Prexy": "Well — er — I shall have to put in — er — shall I say — er — 
seven bones !!!!!!" 

"Doc" B.: "W-e-1-1— h-e-h— guess I'll call yer." 

"Frenchie" : "Yah, all 'ight, I haf a pair of queens, can you beat dat, 
Dr. Purinton?" 

"Purry": "Ha! Ha! Ha! Frenchie, I have a flush." 

"Goosie": "Judas Priest!!!! What do you think you've got there?" 
Did they make a flush out of three spades and two clubs when you were 
at Colby?" 

"Prexy" : "Er — they didn't do it that way at the University of Chicago, 
eyther!!!!!" Laughter 


"Freddie" : "Don't you s-see-e, Dr. Pewrinton, that in order to have a 
fwlush, your cards must be all of the same s-suit?" 

"Purry" : "Oh, yaas, I see, but I thought if they were all of one color 
they would count just the same." 


"Birdie" : "I have three queens, yes, sir ! I have three queens." 

"Freddie": "It seems to me-e that you are twaveling pwetty fast, 
Birdie, with fwee queens." 

"Prexy": "Er — how do you get that way?????? Frenchie already has 
three queens, er — how many are there in the pack, anyhow????" 

"Birdie": "That's all right, President Gray, one of my queens is a 

"Freddie" : "I guess I am out of it ; all I have is jacks and deuces." 

"Prexy" : "Er — my hand reminds me of chapel : a full house." 

"Goosie": "Is that your idea of humor, 'C. D.'?" 

"Doc" B. : "W-e-1-1, h-e-h — guess the pot's mine, straight flush, king 
high. H-e-h, dealer's s'posed to have the best hand anyhow — h-e-h — ."

As someone has well and wisely said, "The co-educational game at 
Bates is what a man makes it." We study because we believe that one 
gets only as much out of his courses as he puts into them. We wonder if 
the same does not apply to 'Varsity Co-education. Almost without excep- 
tion those who have been highly successful and have become "assistants" 
in the course are those who sacrificed everything to their work. No study 
was ever important enough to keep them away from a "pressing" engage- 
ment, and it has been unauthoritatively reported that an occasional worker 
has foregone all the joys of a visit to a College Commons in the pursuit of 
his ambition. Yet, when we pause to think of the glory that the magnifi- 
cent game brings to our class and to our college, can we not say that these 
sacrifices are justified? Perhaps it was some of these diligent workers 
that inspired Dr. Britan to write his famous essay on "The Whys and 
Wherefores of Loving," causing Miss Early of the Boston American to 
travel down to Bates, bringing fame and honor to the college and placing 
our 'Varsity Co-educational Team in a position that is very unique among 
the other college of the country. 

And, as usual, 1921 plays a prominent position on that team. For 
four years the men of '21 have worked diligently to uphold one of Bates' 
most cherished traditions. In their Freshman year they were told that 
Bates was among the first colleges in the country to admit women students, 
and immediately clearly saw that it was their duty to make Bates the last 
college to let them go again. Too much credit cannot be given to Pt'of. 
Knapp, Dr. Hartshorn, and Dr. Britan for keeping the little spark of 
romance alive and interest from lagging by their timely words of advice 
and gentle suggestions. A statistical investigation of the class shows a 
record to be proud of. While the character of this book does not admit 
the publication of the names of some of our more prominent players an 
idea of the interest shown in the sport can be gathered by a perusal of the 
following data carefully gathered and compiled by Mr. Rowe for the use 
of the Publicity Committee : 

Data Gathered from Four Years of Observation of the Class of 1921 

Those who co-educate 1 10 

Those who co-educate under favorable circumstances 50 

Those who co-educate under unfavorable circumstances 2 

Those who co-educate under any sort of circumstances 50 

Those who do not co-educate on account of a lack of sparring partners 8 

Total 220 

Those counted twice 110 

Grand total 110 

Thus it will be readily seen wherein 1921 has established a precedent 
to be idealized and, in so far as possible, approached by all future classes 
and if, during its four year sojourn at Bates, it has succeeded in establish- 
ing a lasting monument to its work it can only pass modestly on, letting 
others observe its footprints in the sands of time.

Time: 7.30 p.m. The night of a Bates dance. 

Place: Third floor corridor of Rand.

Eddie's voice rising out of the existing hubbub : "Hey, Dece, come hook 
me up." 

Dece (obligingly) : "Sure." 

Min (with looking glass in hand) : Dece, have I got too much powder 
on my nose?" 

Dece (critically) : "W-e-e-1-1, er, I s'pose some of it will rub off." 

42-2 rings and Barb dances down stairs : "That's my Thomas." 

15-2 and 13-2 ring immediately and Phil starts down, crying: "For the 
Lord's sake, Saff, hurry up." 

Saff follows at once with a jovial: "Aw, gwan, I'll get there before 
you do yet." 

Min and Eddie in chorus : "We've been ready for ten minutes and those 
darn boys haven't come yet." 

Laura: "There go your bells, now." (Pacing corridor, disgustedly.) 
"I wish Bill would speed up."

Min (with Phil, Eddie, Laura and Barb echoing) : "Wasn't it 

Barb (anxiously) : "Did I look taller than Tom with my high heels?" 

Phil (with a disgusted sigh) : "Oh, gosh, kids, didn't you hate to leave 
at 11:30?" 

Min (excitedly) : "Well, I think we ought to be allowed to — " 

Laura (emphatically) : "Well, by heck! so do I. 

The door opens noiselessly and Crete pokes her head in : "Say, kids, do 
you know you are making an awful noise?" (Withdraws head but reopens 
door to ask) : "D'you have a good time?" 

The whole bunch: "SWELL!!" 

Saff (with a wink at the rest) : "Say, did you see Eddie and John 
dancing cheek to cheek?" 

Eddie (indignantly) : "Oh, you go chase yourself! My nose only comes 
to his necktie." 

Phil (resignedly) : "I s'pose we've all got to go to church tomorrow 

Barb (dejectedly) : "Well, we've got to go if we want to get to the next

Emma (incensed) : "Don't speak to me. I can't find a darned thing. 
How can anybody go anywhere ? My suit skirt's gone and somebody's got 
my hair-pins." 

(Enter Marguerite frantically) : "I'd jolly well like to know where my 
shoes are. I can't go without any." 

Marian (trying to help out) : "I thought I saw them in Fisher's room." 
(Goes out.) 

Marguerite: "I haven't any gloves, either. They ought to be in my 
top drawer, but they aren't." 

Emma: "Oh, don't fuss. I'll borrow Clarice's." (Raising voice) 
"Clareece? Have you got some gloves? Can I take them? All right." 
(Gloves are promptly secured.)

intuning — ) "Leena vas de queen of Palesteena" — finishes coiffure with 
fancy comb and surveys herself in the mirror well pleased.) 

Irma and Emma: " — played her concertin — a."

Em (registering resignation in the mirror) : "There, I borrowed that 
for Marg, haven't you got it yet?" 

Marguerite: "I didn't wear it at all. It ought to be here." (Both are in 
despair, knowing full well it cannot be found.) "We'll have to look." 

Em: "Here, take this one."

black velvet girdle on it — thought maybe you forgot it."

Rand without getting all fussed up. I should think you'd cut it out. Be 
reasonable, like me. T'ell with them all, I say." 

Harold: "Good reason. You don't get the chance." 

Intermission while they light up.

Snappy Synopsis with Dynamic Climax 

I fall out 30 seconds before breakfast. 

At table, I converse brightly by means of old puns and stale jokes in 
the hope that my fellows may believe that I have been up an hour cram- 
ming for our Ed. exam. 

The 15 minutes before the bell I spend searching in vain for my Ed. 
notes taken on two consecutive days last February. 

I walk to class with some of the studious ones and casually extract 
points here and there. 

I march into Ed. room nonchalantly and smile confidently at my 
instructor. (Lucky I do before I see the questions!) 

I pucker my brows thoughtfully at the corner and scribble on. 

I am obliged to cut chapel because someone has just told me that we 
have a French exam on 18th century literature next hour. (Note: It 
didn't do any good; everybody had taken his notebook with him.) 

I enter the French room calm and unafraid. I appropriate my neigh- 
bor's notebook on the pretext of looking up the style of Moliere, and in 
l-minute-45-seconds review three months' notes. 

Then I have a Spanish class, where I read at sight; but nobody knows 
it because I am so good at it. 

At 11 o'clock, I have an hour in which I should (1) run over to Lab. 
(2) correct themes, (3) write an oration, (4) work on a thesis, (5) trot 
about and pay some bills. I can't decide which, so I hail an old crony 
with a tennis racquet and play two bum sets before dinner. 

At Monie's English, I sit in the front seat and am unprepared. I am 
the goat as usual and at 2 o'clock I decide I'll take in the movies. I go out. 

Only I am reminded that I have Latin Comp. next hour, and prepare 
for an hour's rest. 

But unfortunately we are given out exam, sheets, and I have done only 
two lessons this year. Of course I take it. 

In desperation I go to the Qual. 

I am followed angrily by the Business Manager of the Mirror. I had 
promised to get material in a week ago and the whole thing is being held up. 

When I return, there is a telephone call. I am way behind in correct- 
ing my themes ; they must be in tomorrow. 

Someone hands me a note from Prexy in which it is brought to my 
attention that I have overcut French several times. 

I am informed that the S. G. Board would like to meet me that evening. 
Evidently I have put my foot in it again. 

Still later by a phone call, I am informed that unless I get my oration 
and incompletes passed in very, very soon, / shall not pass on. 

I drag myself up the stairs to my room and affix to my door the sign, 
"As you respect the dead, Pass Without Entering." 

With a sweep of one arm I clear the table and gather my work unto me.
